Hi, I'm Mike G and I'll be glad to assist you. You'll need to check the breaker size for that circuit , that determines the wire size. 15A=14/2 cable, 20A=12/2 cable. Both have a black, white and ground wires. One more thing, code requires that you replace the breaker with an AFCI breaker because of the addition of wire.
