McNulty joins from Reading on a season-long loan, after the Black Cats beat Charlton Athletic to his signature.

“Marc arrives with a wealth of experience in the EFL and an impressive goalscoring record,” Ross said.

“He understands the expectation that comes with playing for a club of this size, and he is ready to work hard and embrace that challenge. I’m sure he will be a valuable addition to the squad and have a big impact over the course of the 2019-20 season.”

McNulty struggled after joinign the Royals last summer but impressed on loan at Hibs, and had a remarkable scoring record at Coventry City.
