'More confusing than Brighton signing Jason Steele' - SAFC fans stunned after Crystal Palace sign ex-Cats stopper
In one of this window’s more surprising moves, former Sunderland goalkeeper Remi Matthews has joined Crystal Palace.
The stopper was released by the Black Cats following the conclusion of the 2020-21 season, during which he largely played second fiddle to Lee Burge.
But Matthews has now penned a two-year deal at Selhurst Park, where is set to provide cover for Vicente Guaita and Jack Butland.
And Sunderland fans were quick to react to Matthews’ move – with many supporters surprised!
Here’s how YOU reacted to the news on social media:
@Walshie409: “Quite literally the worst goalkeeper I've ever seen play, fair do's.”
@mackemcafu2: “Absolutely incredible that he has got a move to a premier league club. Even as a 3rd choice.”
@jaker1602: “Scott Carson to City vibes. Hope for your sake he never has to play.”
@artyspooner1974: “You have to say hats off to his agent for somehow pulling this off best of luck to the lad though.”
@AL_SNR58: “Couldn’t have seen him play.”
@mattymillfield: “This goes to show that anything is possible. Deary me.”
@jacksafcscott: “More confusing than Brighton signing Jason Steele.”
@W1986Andy: “Not a bad career move. Warm the bench at L1 club or warm the bench at PL club. Not bad work if you can get it. One for the homegrown quota too.”
@AJC98__: “I know he’s never gonna play but still don’t understand hahaha.”
@stephen79016425: “Must be 10th choice...”
