SUNDERLAND boss Chris Coleman is closing in on a loan deal for Liverpool whizzkid Ben Woodburn.

By Ian Murtagh / Published 5th January 2018

Ben Woodburn was handed his Wales debut by Chris Coleman
And the former Wales boss is convinced the 18-year-old can play a key role in the Black Cats’ fight for Championship survival this season.

Coleman handed the teenager his international debut in September 2017 when Woodburn repaid him with the winner in a World Cup qualifier against Austria.

The Chester-born forward became Liverpool’s youngster-ever marksman when he found the net in an EFL Cup quarter-final win over Leeds last season.

Cash-strapped Sunderland, who slumped to the foot of the table earlier this week, cannot afford to sign any player on a permanent basis.

But Coleman will use his Welsh connections to try to strengthen his injury-ravaged squad, who are down to the bare bones for their FA Cup tie at Middlesbrough.

And he revealed the emphasis will be on hungry wannabees rather than washed-out has-beens in his recruitment drive.

“What I don’t want to bring in is an experienced player who has been around the block and wants to come here just to go through the motions,” he said.

“If it’s a younger one who comes in with his sleeves rolled up and he’s not afraid of it, then I’ll take that all day long.

“Give me an 18 or 19 year old with a bit of fight and fire in his belly than someone who’s 30 with £50m in the bank and 500 games under his belt but who’s lost his appetite.”

Chris Coleman would prefer to bring in young blood rather than experienced heads
Coleman, who is also on the verge of clinching another loan deal, feels a temporary move to Wearside can clearly benefit Woodburn despite the club’s current woes.

“It’s not for the faint hearted here,” he added. “It’s risk reward.

“You’ll get a chance to prove yourself here and learn, playing in front of a demanding crowd. That’s good for young players and good for him.”

Coleman has also told any unsettled player at the Stadium of Light they can leave this transfer window.

“If someone doesn’t want to be here, as long as they’re honest and come out and say 'I’m not up for the fight' that’s fine.

“We can’t afford any pretender in our ranks. We need soldiers who will keep marching forward.”

Coleman is hoping to offload Lamine Kone and Didier Ndong who are interesting Everton and Watford respectively.

Sunderland set to seal loan signing of Liverpool teen Ben Woodburn as Chris Coleman warns his senior players: 'If you don't want to play for us, jog on, go somewhere else and play badly'

It won't be easy but he is the right man for the job. I fully expect to see you climbing up the table second half of the season.  like

I really really want this to be the case.. I hope you are right.

I certainly do not want us to go down.. but our performances I have watched this season are dire. We urgently need an inflow of talent.. but Short has it seems washed his hands of us and just wants his money back at any price. Why on earth a decent manager like Coleman has taken us on I do not have a clue

The answer is that imo is very simple. Coleman sees a big club in need of a complete rebuild and he has the confidence to believe he is the man to do it. He is I share his confidence

It's not an inflow of talent we need.
What we need is some big 6'4", 14 stone bruisers so we can physically compete in this division.
That's a major problem. We're far too lightweight.
