The Latest Sunderland FC Transfer News
Historical Transfer News and Team Gossip has been archived below:
Sunderland manager Martin O`Neill has said he would love to improve his squad this summer with a number of players as the Black Cats found themselves not having the best season last time round. The manager has many potential targets to bring up north and is working around the clock to reinforce his squad so he can ensure their survival in the English top flight next season.
The first departure from the club this summer is Michael Liddle who has just been taken on board at Accrington Stanley on a one year deal after he impressed Paul Cook whilst he was on loan at the club last season. Cook feels the player will be a great asset to his up and coming Stanley side and hopes the player may stay longer than the year deal they have just put in place.
Sunderland are currently leading the chase for talented Blackburn midfielder Steven N`Zonzi after the player openly stated last week that he had no intention of playing in the championship next season and wishes to return to the premier league with any team. This has put O`Neill on high alert as he has long been an admirer of the player and will do all he can to bring N`Zonzi to the Stadium Of Light for the start of next season.
Another player who will not be lining up at the Stadium Of Light next year is forward Jordan Cook who has just signed a deal with Charlton after enduring a nightmare period at Sunderland. The player has been out of favour for some time now and it seemed ever likely that he was no longer in Martin O`Neill`s plans and thus he has made his way from Tyneside for pastures new.
Asamoah Gyan is another player who has finally left Sunderland on a permanent deal after the player had been on a season long loan at Al Ain. The player has now made a permanent switch to the middle easten club in a four year deal as he was fearful of not having enough time on the pitch for his parent club so the deal was the best option for him as they have promised him football week in week out.

Sunderland Latest Football Team News
- Thu, 03 Jun 2021 13:39:12 +0000: ‘It’s really over’: Former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner confirms retirement - Sunderland | The Guardian
- Dane also played for Sunderland, Birmingham and Wolfsburg
- 33-year-old won a Serie A title with Juventus
The former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner has announced his retirement from football aged 33.
Danish international Bendtner, who also had spells at Sunderland, Birmingham and Juventus, scored 30 times for his country in 81 games in an international career spanning 12 years. Continue reading...
- Sat, 22 May 2021 16:49:20 +0000: Lincoln reach League One play-off final after Hopper’s header at Sunderland - Sunderland | The Guardian
Lee Johnson had asked Sunderland fans to serve as his team’s extra man by turning one of English football’s most atmospheric arenas into a cauldron and they did not disappoint.
It was not the supporters’ fault that Lincoln rather than Sunderland will contest the League One play-off final at Wembley against Blackpool next Sunday. Or that the Wearsiders are consigned to a fourth successive season in the third tier. Continue reading...
- Fri, 21 May 2021 15:28:45 +0000: Sunderland desperate to overturn play-off deficit against Lincoln - Sunderland | The Guardian
Having lost the semi-final first leg 2-0, Lee Johnson’s side have an uphill task if they are to avoid a fourth season in League One
As the sun set over Sincil Bank on Wednesday Sunderland’s hopes of escaping League One seemed to be fading in synch with the evening light. Lee Johnson’s side were 2-0 down after the first leg of their play-off semi-final against Lincoln and contemplating the unpalatable prospect of spending a fourth successive season in the third tier.
That fate can still be avoided but, as Johnson acknowledges, there is scant margin for error in front of 10,000 fans in Saturday’s second leg. “We’re still in this,” said the former Bristol City manager. “But we have to turn it round on one of the biggest days in our club’s recent history.” Continue reading...
- Wed, 19 May 2021 21:26:12 +0000: Brennan Johnson taps in gift as Lincoln claim first-leg win over Sunderland - Sunderland | The Guardian
Michael Appleton, the Lincoln manager, was proud of his players after they seized the initiative in the first leg of their League One play-off against Sunderland, running out deserved 2-0 winners at a raucous LNER Stadium.
Following a goalless first half, Tom Hopper struck after 51 minutes to give the Imps the lead, before Brennan Johnson took advantage of a goalkeeping blunder by Lee Burge to double the advantage. And while Appleton knows the job is only half finished, he admitted he was happy heading to Wearside on Saturday firmly in the driving seat. Continue reading...
- Sat, 15 May 2021 19:00:34 +0000: Down but not out: lampooned Allardyce can still make Albion proud | Jonathan Wilson - Sunderland | The Guardian
The West Brom manager has a stain on his record now. But nobody should think the old magic has entirely deserted him
The summer of 2016 has a lot of answer for. What if England had not been beaten by Iceland in the last 16 of the Euros? What if they had not lost their nerve, if Joe Hart had not made that mistake, if somebody, anybody, had demonstrated any kind of clarity of vision and attempted a mode of attacking that was not just whacking the ball into the box or giving it to Wayne Rooney? What if they had then scrambled through a quarter-final against the anxious hosts, France, to set up (another) semi-final show-down with Germany?
Perhaps Roy Hodgson would have had his contract renewed, perhaps Sam Allardyce would not have been appointed and perhaps Sunderland would be a thriving Premier League side. Think back, to that final league game of 2015-16 at the Stadium of Light: a 3-0 win over Everton in front of jubilant stands to secure survival; Allardyce on the pitch afterwards, tie somewhere near his navel, celebrating before an audience that truly appreciated him; Allardyce downing bottles of lager in a brief post-match press conference; Allardyce with Jim Montgomery, the goalkeeping legend of the 1973 FA Cup final, holding court in the bar of the Hilton Garden Inn after that.
