'Lee Cattermole part two!': Sunderland fans are all saying the same thing after Phil Parkinson's latest move
Phil Parkinson has made another move in the transfer market, signing midfielder Josh Scowen on a permanent basis - and Sunderland fans are all saying the same thing.
The 26-year-old has swapped QPR for Wearside to become Parkinson’s third signing of the window, and fans have offered a positive response to his capture.
And plenty were left pleased after his first interview with the club, during which he expressed his love for the physical side of the game – drawing comparisons to former fan favourite Lee Cattermole.
Here’s what supporters were saying on social media:
@jamestweddell said: “Good signing. Done well at Barnsley and QPR. Can’t imagine we were the only club in for him so we must have put some effort in here. Go on lads and I hope you hit the ground running Josh”
@georgesparents added: “You sound excited, eager and raring to go. Brilliant!”
@SAFC1715 commented: “Not bad but we Still need a left back”

@newtsfever posted: “Josh Scowen and Bailey Wright are that right type of player we should be signing. Over 100’s apps in the championship, not crocked and at a good age.”
@jamesnaisbett added: “Hopefully he gives us an extra option in Midfield as we can’t rely on Power and Dobson all the time. Now a goal scorer (with pace), and a winger / wing back”
