The winger has penned a new one-year deal at the Stadium of Light and has reiterated his desire to help the side out of League One and back into the Championship.

McGeady is the first of the four players offered fresh terms to commit his future to Sunderland and fans are hoping he won’t be the last.

But while many did hope this was only the start for Sunderland, other supporters were just delighted to see a key man retained ahead of a competitive season.

@Philip_RJ89 commented: “It’s a definite positive that he’s staying, but I’m adamant that we can’t solely rely on him next season. ‘Give it to Geads’ cannot be the only approach we have. He can play a role as part of a revamped attack, hopefully!”
