Stewart Donald has thanked Sunderland fans for the 'absolutely fantastic' response to the club's extended season ticket offer.
Sunderland had already sold over 16,000 season tickets ahead of the League One campaign before it was announced on Friday the reduced price season ticket offer was being extended to June 22.

"Your support is greatly appreciated & not taken 4 granted.
"We are all working hard to repay your faith & will keep you all updated on season tickets plus other developments next week."
