Former Sunderland defender Phil Babb says the club should look at signing Chris Samba, Aiden McGeady and Gabriel Agbonlahor this summer.
Defender Samba plays in Russia for Anzhi Makhachkala after moving there from Blackburn Rovers earlier this year.
Despite his recent transfer though, it has been reported he is looking to return to the Premier League and Babb sees him as an ideal candidate for a transfer to Sunderland.
The former Ireland international also suggests his countryman Aiden McGeady as a possible signing for Sunderland.
McGeady is away at Euro 2012 and plays for Spartak Moscow, but Sunderland manager Martin O’Neill worked with him at Celtic.
Babb says he also sees an option for O’Neill is to return for another former colleague in Gabriel Agbonlahor.
The Aston Villa striker enjoyed a good spell under O’Neill and Babb suggests that he may now look to link back up with his former manager.
