6. Stephen Henderson
Henderson offers a wealth of experience and, at 31, could prove to be a solid competitor for McLaughlin. Whether he would be willing to make the move to Sunderland would have to be questioned, though.

8. Anders Lindegaard
The former Manchester United man is available after leaving Burnley this summer, and would add some quality to the squad. Wages could be a stumbling block, though, and the stopper may not wish to drop to League One.
