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Historical Transfer News and Team Gossip has been archived below: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 for the 2017 – 2018 Season

  • Tue, 06 Mar 2018 21:53:52 +0000: Aston Villa’s Grabban and Chester pile more misery on Sunderland - Sunderland | The Guardian

    Kasabian’s version of The Sweet Escape was played on the sound system before kick-off but, long before the end, Sunderland fans had resorted to a rather more familiar refrain.

    As the ground echoed to chants of “You’re not fit to wear the shirt” Chris Coleman’s side stayed firmly rooted to the bottom of the Championship. They were beaten easily by an upwardly mobile Aston Villa who, inspired by Robert Snodgrass’s creative class, remain third.

    • Club offers hot food and places to sleep at Stadium of Light
    • North-east hit hard by UK’s brutal weather

    Sunderland turned a usually quiet corner of the Stadium of Light into a temporary shelter for homeless people on Friday.

    Acutely conscious that the north-east remains one of the areas worst affected by the extreme weather, club staff have created a special “warm room” in the ground’s south-west corner. It can accommodate up to 12 people and is open to all.

  • Sat, 24 Feb 2018 17:29:29 +0000: Sunderland snatch draw against Middlesbrough at end of wild derby - Sunderland | The Guardian

    An arctic afternoon featuring two brilliant goals from Patrick Bamford, two straight red cards and a flock of seagulls persistently swooping low across the pitch concluded with Callum McManaman volleying a dramatic late equaliser for Sunderland.

    Bamford’s class in Tony Pulis’s frontline seemed to have settled things in Middlesbrough’s favour when McManaman dented Teesside play-off hopes by earning Chris Coleman’s side a potentially vital point in their relegation fight. The winger celebrated by pointedly racing towards Pulis and provocatively mock-saluting Boro’s manager.

  • Thu, 22 Feb 2018 13:00:24 +0000: Stadium of plight: Sunderland at risk of their most shattering relegation | Louise Taylor - Sunderland | The Guardian

    Chris Coleman spoke of rebuilding Sunderland but, with the club bottom of the Championship, an owner unable to sell and poor player recruitment, the manger now seems less certain

    When Chris Coleman walks in, one question invariably seems to echo around the room. “Why?” the former Wales manager is asked. “Why Sunderland?” The moment at a Christmas drinks party when someone put it rather more bluntly and inquired what the hell he was doing there was not an isolated cameo.

    Coleman typically responds with grace and humour but, just lately, his talk of “sleepless nights” and “soul destroying afternoons” in the technical area, allied to the sense he is “in the middle of a tornado” and “staring into an abyss”, reflects inner doubts.

    Sunderland have arguably the best stadium in this division, certainly the biggest, but that’s no advantage because our players can’t play in it. They aren’t handling the pressure. They’ve been abysmal

    • José Morais loses first game in charge of Barnsley
    • Aston Villa held to 1-1 home draw by Preston

    Burton condemned José Morais to defeat in his first game in charge of Barnsley with a 2-1 victory which moved Albion off the bottom of the Championship.

    The Portuguese, appointed as Paul Heckingbottom’s successor last week, suffered a dismal start to life at Oakwell as Jamie Allen’s screamer put the visitors 1-0 ahead inside a minute. Jacob Davenport doubled Burton’s advantage with a free-kick on the stroke of half-time and they held on despite Daniel Pinillos’ 75th-minute goal. Burton leapfrogged Sunderland and Barnsley but remain in the bottom three, below Hull only on goal difference.
