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Historical Transfer News and Team Gossip has been archived below: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

  • Thu, 16 May 2019 20:53:18 +0000: Sunderland book League One final spot after cagey draw with Portsmouth - Sunderland | The Guardian

    After the darkness of the past three seasons perhaps there is finally light at the end of the tunnel for Sunderland’s long-suffering supporters.

    Faced with a vociferous Portsmouth crowd baying for blood with one fan ejected after appearing to aim a kick and a punch at the defender Luke O’Nien when he fell into the crowd in the first half, Jack Ross’s side stood firm to seal their place in the League One play-off final against Charlton or Doncaster with a performance of real maturity.

  • Sat, 11 May 2019 21:27:44 +0000: Chris Maguire gives Sunderland narrow lead over Portsmouth in play-offs - Sunderland | The Guardian

    Sunderland claimed a 1-0 win in their League One play-off semi-final first leg against Portsmouth.

    Chris Maguire scored the only goal at the Stadium of Light with a 62nd-minute volley, and Sunderland then had to hold on to their lead for the last quarter of the match a man down.

  • Wed, 08 May 2019 11:00:08 +0000: Relegation blues: how a football team's fortunes can affect a whole city - Sunderland | The Guardian

    Sunderland fans could end this season celebrating promotion – but the team’s 2017 and 2018 relegations hurt more than local pride

    When Sunderland AFC take on Portsmouth in the promotion playoff semi-finals this weekend, it won’t just be diehard fans cheering them on. Local businesses also have a vested interest in how the team fares. “When morale’s high, people spend – but when it’s low they don’t,” says Andy Bradley, director of the Bridges, a bright, mall-style shopping centre in the heart of Sunderland. “If the team does well, parents spend their money on treats for the kids.”

    The success of a football club can have a material impact on a city’s economy. When Leicester became Premier League champions in 2016, takings at the city’s tills rose appreciably, with the economic forecasting group EY estimating that the title triumph contributed a fairly immediate £140m to the local economy.

  • Sun, 31 Mar 2019 16:24:13 +0000: Portsmouth’s Oliver Hawkins sinks Sunderland to seal Checkatrade Trophy - Sunderland | The Guardian
    • Portsmouth 2-2 Sunderland aet (Portsmouth win 5-4 on pens)
    • Hawkins keeps cool from the spot after McGeady double

    As if Portsmouth supporters had not suffered enough in recent years, they were put through the torment of a penalty shootout before being crowned Checkatrade Trophy champions, with Oliver Hawkins sweeping home the winning spot-kick in front of a baying sea of delirious fans. Sunderland may have painted Trafalgar Square red and white but Portsmouth left this stadium a shade of blue.

    Sunderland ensured a seesawing game culminated in penalties after Aiden McGeady’s second goal wormed its way in with a minute of extra time to play, but Lee Cattermole’s failure from 12 yards – Craig MacGillivray diving low to his left to save – ultimately proved fatal. Portsmouth will hope this is just the start of a successful end to the season, while Sunderland’s primary aim remains an instant return to the Championship.

  • Sat, 30 Mar 2019 19:00:42 +0000: Will Grigg fired by Wembley ambition before Sunderland face Portsmouth - Sunderland | The Guardian

    The striker wants to make memories for the club’s fans at the Checkatrade Trophy final, even if the Black Cats have bigger aims

    Will Grigg appreciates the potential conflict of interests. He fully understands the tension between short- and longer-term ambitions. Yet there is nothing remotely bittersweet about his anticipation of a first Wembley appearance. “It’s no secret that promotion’s our aim, but football’s about giving fans great days and memories of being at big games,” says Sunderland’s Northern Ireland striker as he prepares for Sunday’s Checkatrade Trophy final against Portsmouth.

    “I understand there are circumstances where people have to sacrifice cups for the league, but these finals are the things you remember throughout your career, and your life. We’ve got 40,000 fans going to Wembley. Different generations of the same families will all be walking down Wembley Way together and we want it to be one of those landmark days. We want to make memories.”
