McNairs best performances on Wearside came from central midfield, however Tony Pulis viewed him as a defender, which saw him endure a difficult first season at Middlesbrough.
Galloway flopped in his loan spell on Wearside and remained in Evertons under-23s set-up this season. Reports say he is likely to leave Goodison Park this summer.
Was it a mistake to leave Sunderland? The stats certainly suggest so as Asoro started just four times for Swansea - his last coming in 2018 - in 16 appearances in total.
If Wilson thought he had it tough on Wearside then he was made to think twice at Bolton. He often went months unpaid as financial trouble dominated the Trotters on their relegation to League One.
Embleton was raved about at Grimsby before a hamstring injury in March brought an end to a promising campaign. He managed to clock up 27 appearances, where his attention now turns to his contract situation on Wearside.
Browning returned to Evertons under-23s set-up, though opted for a permanent switch to China in January with GZ Evergrande. He is slowly adapting to life in Asia.
Jones struggled to make the right-back spot his own and injuries impacted his game time at the New York Stadium. In total, he made 21 outings as Rotherham slipped back in League One.
At the age of 38, the ex-Black Cats captain decided to hang up his book at the end of the season with just nine appearances to his name at Reading.
The midfielder spent the first half of the season at Rangers before joining Reading on loan. He appeared to make an impact at the Madejski Stadium as the Royals avoided relegation to League One.
Signed as cover to Brighton number one Matt Ryan, the Australians ever-presence in the Premier League restricted Steele to just two first-team appearance - one a piece in the FA Cup and Carabao Cup.
Fletcher had to bide his time at Boro but was rewarded with a first-team breakthrough in 2019, featuring in the clubs final 15 fixtures, netting five times in the process.
Used as an impact sub rather than a starter, McManamans 21 appearances for Wigan provided just one start in the league as Wigan secured Championship survival.
The defender was soon shipped to Chelseas feeder club Vitesse Arnhem - missing just five games - as the club secured a 5th place finish in Eredivisie.
While reports suggest Kone will return to Wearside in the summer, the defender is believed to have impressed at Strasbourg with his 26 appearances helping the French side to 12th in Ligue 1.
LuaLua appeared 22 times for Sunderlands League One rivals Luton Town as they achieved promotion to the Championship as champions. He is popular among the Hatters fans and is in talks over extending his stay.
(Dis)Honourable mention for the ex-Cats loanee. While Camp will be mocked by Sunderland fans for a long time, he was virtually an ever-present member at Birmingham this season with 44 appearances to his name.
A name that continues to send shivers down Sunderland fans spines. While Rodwell appeared just 21 times, it might be enough to earn him a new deal at Blackburn with discussions ongoing.
The once AWOL duo became teammates at Guingamp in December. It ended in relegation for both. Ndong featured more than Djilobodji with 11 appearances compared to Senegaleses four.
