Tony Mowbray now sends warning to Sunderland board ahead of January transfer

Tony Mowbray has warned the Sunderland board not to sell off their prized assets.

In an interview with Chronicle Live, the Black Cats manager stated that he hopes his Sunderland players will’stick together’ and bring success to the club rather than being sold.

Sunderland have spent less than £13 million since Kyril Louis-Dreyfus took over and have assembled an extremely talented squad of young players, some of whom are potentially worth more than that sum.

In the future, the Black Cats could make a fortune off the likes of Anthony Patterson, Jobe Bellingham, Dan Neil, and Dan Ballard, while Jack Clarke is already a name that appears to be destined for the Premier League sooner rather than later.

Burnley made multiple bids for the winger in the summer, and it is believed that Brighton and Crystal Palace have since joined the race. Over the next few transfer windows, the former Tottenham Hotspur youngster could fetch around £20 million.

While Sunderland will look to profit handsomely from their promising young players, Tony Mowbray wants his best players to stay and help the club win promotion.

In an interview with Chronicle Live, Mowbray stated: ‘. “Who is in this group?” My main hope is that they can stick together and be successful for this club, rather than being individually sold off and then five years later people say, “Remember that team Mowbray had, how did he not get promoted with that team?” He had to be struggling.

“I think they’ve all got the potential to have really good careers and I hope they can achieve that here, together.”

Will Sunderland be making a mistake if they cash in on their biggest stars?

When Tony Mowbray says he hopes our prized assets stay on Wearside, he is speaking for all fans, but that is probably still too good to be true.

Personally, I believe the Sunderland board views all of our assets as sellable if we can make a decent profit. But I don’t think we should send people like Jack Clarke packing if he hasn’t indicated that he wants to leave.

The 22-year-old stated in the summer that he was happy to stay at Sunderland, but would we have sold him anyway if we had received a higher bid?

The Black Cats should try to keep their top players in order to help us gain promotion to the Premier League, as this is the best position we have been in for a long time.
