Of course the Black Cats’ business will depend on what division they find themselves in next season, with Lee Johnson’s side still pushing to win promotion from League One.

Still, it’s been reported by a national newspaper that Louis-Dreyfus will hand Johnson ‘a £60million war chest’ if Sunderland can reach the Championship.

The report in The Sun on Sunday claimed that budget is likely to be spread across the summer and winter transfer windows.

Following the story, we asked Sunderland supporters who they would realistically sign ahead of the new season if the club wins promotion.

Many of you replied via our Sunderland Echo SAFC Facebook and Twitter pages – with several picking out Dion Sanderson and Jordan Jones, who are on loan at the Stadium of Light.

Here are some of the names that were mentioned.
