THROUGHOUT January, the Echo counted down the top 100 post-war Sunderland signings, with your votes deciding that Kevin Phillips took top spot.

To coincide with the free pull-out in today’s Sunderland Echo, the panel who drew up the top 100 and nominated the top 10 shortlist, have teamed up with the Wise Men Say podcast to discuss the club’s greatest signings.

After our judging panel whittled down the candidates to a top 10, we invited you to select the best via text or online.

Thousands of you took the time to cast your vote and the overwhelming favourite - with 44 per cent of the vote - was Phillips.
