In Sunderland, Amad will be joining a team sitting 14th in the Championship after starting the season with one win, one draw and two losses. Where the Ivory Coast international will fit in remains to be seen, though, with Neil lining up his sides in a 3-4-1-2 formation without wingers.
Mowbray has commonly favoured a 4-3-3 throughout his career, so he could switch to that system at the Stadium of Light. That formation would suit Amad, and a move to Sunderland could hopefully be a kick-starter to the difficult early stages of his United career.
