Man United duo team up with Moyes at Sunderland

David Moyes

Sunderland boss David Moyes has made his first raids on old club Manchester United with the signings of Paddy McNair and Donald Love, as reported by Sky Sports.

They might not be as high-profile as some of the United players being linked with a move to the Stadium of Light, but the pair are solid additions nonetheless.

The Black Cats have had to pay a combined fee of just £5.5million.

McNair, an international with Northern Ireland, can play either in central midfield or central defence and that’s exactly the kind of versatility Moyes needs if he is to keep his new side in the top flight.


Love is also a defender, so it’s thought Moyes will still be active in the transfer market as he looks to bolster his attack by finding support for Jermain Defoe.

The former Everton, United, and Real Sociedad boss seems to be building his team on the scraps from the Premier League’s top clubs, also buying in Papy Djilobodji from Chelsea.

That is not necessarily a bad strategy, however, as he is clearly bringing young talent to the club and that can only aid his long-term vision.
