SUNDERLAND boss Tony Mowbray wants to rescue Bradley Dack from his misery at Blackburn.
Mowbray is after a deal for the attacking midfielder, who is struggling for starts under Rovers boss Jon Dahl Tomasson.
Dack, 28, is out of contract in the summer and Blackburn may let him go in January to take his wages off their payroll.
Mowbray signed him for Blackburn and kept backing him despite a couple of serious knee injuries.
The Black Cats are in the market for extra forwards after their campaign was disrupted by the loss of Ross Stewart and Ellis Simms due to injury.
Dack joined Blackburn from Gillingham in 2017.
His 18 goals and nine assists during his first season helped fire Rovers out of League One and back to the Championship.
He netted another 15 during his maiden second-tier season – before two separate cruciate ligament injuries hindered his progress.
Dack has played in 11 of Blackburn’s 20 league games so far this term, starting just three.
He was an unused substitute as Tomasson’s side beat Huddersfield 1-0 yesterday.
After the Ewood Park triumph, the Rovers boss told the BBC: “I’m delighted.
“We were a little bit disappointed to come in at half-time still leading 1-0 – we could have done it a little bit better, and we knew how difficult it would be, to be patient and take chances, because we were playing against a wall.
“We spoke about a couple of solutions at half-time and came out very strong, created a couple of chances immediately and had a goal disallowed that probably should have killed the game.
“In the end when you are only leading 1-0 it can be tough, and it was tough in the last period, but big credit to the players and the fans, because that spirit they have, and togetherness they had in defending, and another clean sheet, is great to see.”
