Sunderland will be targeting a left-back this month after Denver Hume suffered an injury setback – but which players will they be considering?

The Black Cats currently have just one senior left-sided defender available for selection, with Hume set to be out for a further eight weeks after a setback in his recovery.

Callum McFadzean has been holding the fort in Hume’s absence, but Lee Johnson is set to dip into the market to bolster that particular area of his squad before the January transfer window closes.
