Absolutely and a superb back up to CB when fully fit. Very good player just needs that bit of luck.

Not yet convinced by CW even when fit.

Would love to be proved wrong but he does not look like a prolific striker to me.

He's still very young at 24 so too early to say that.

Bear in mind Glenn Murray was playing for Rochdale/Brighton in League 1 at 24. Wickham just needs to stay fit and have a run of games- there is talent there.

Whilst I'm far from a sports scientist, it always looks to me like he's actually built up a bit too much muscle and would benefit from trimming down a bit. Can't be easy on the knees being quite so top heavy.

Not sure we can justify someone on 60k a week or maybe come good in many years time when he's already had time at many clubs. If he comes good then make sure we sell him with a buy back clause. He won't start enough here to see his potential come good.

I'm also unconvinced from his record and games at Palace and think he's an expensive backup. Sadly I don't see us shifting him with his injury record and on his wages. So, he's a backup I hope we don't need to use often, but hope in proven wrong and he does come good here.

We don't have enough CFs for us actively look for him to leave. But I'd hate to see him block an academy lad. Don't think he would merit that based on performances. Would love to see an academy given the time and patience he has had.

So underrated on here. yeah he has had some injuries, do you not remember how badly he was missed. Also before his injury last season he was coming off the bench and having a far bigger impact than Benteke was. Very good player with a great left and right foot.

It'll be interesting to see how he plays under a manager that is looking to supply him with chances that aren't just from the wings. His hold up play was also underrated and although he may not have got that many goals for us, he was working with his back to goal and remote from the rest of the team for the vast majority of the season.

Don't forget he spent most of his Sunderland career on the flank, he's a decent forward.

There's a clue why he spent more time on the flank than as a forward.

When he does score it is normally in consecutive games and then nothing.

He was only badly missed because Frazier Campbell was his replacement , again years of neglect in the transfer windows have resulted in a thread bare squad .

Nothing I have seen this window will change that , another manager sacking at Xmas and influx of average players in January
