Broadhead Announced!

Done Deal!

Sunderland have completed their sixth signing of the summer with striker Nathan Broadhead joining on a season-long loan deal from Everton.

Broadhead said: “It’s been a mad 48 hours from being on the bench for Everton to arriving in Sunderland, but I’m so happy to be here.

“I’ve had a good pre-season, training and playing for the first team and travelling with them to America, and I’m sure that will help me hit the ground running.

“It’s been a long time since I’ve played in front of fans due to the pandemic and Sunderland is a massive club, so I can’t wait to get out there.”

Lee Johnson added: “Whenever we bring a player in, we do so because we believe they will make us stronger and that’s absolutely the case with Nathan.

“It’s a coup because he’s had top level offers in Europe, and Championship offers as well, at what is a key stage of his career. He has the experience, technique and speed, and he just needs the vehicle to put that together.

“We believe that Sunderland is the perfect opportunity, as he will have the team, supply and service, and a PL environment around him, so it is a really good match.”

Everton jump the gun

Looks like Everton have jumped the gun to announce Nathan Broadhead’s loan move to Sunderland.

A story saying the striker had completed his move was put on the Everton site this morning but has since been taken down.

Usually when a transfer is agreed, the two clubs will set a time for the deal to be announced.

Sunderland closing in on signing number six

Here’s some good news to start your week.

Sunderland are hoping to seal a loan deal for Everton striker Nathan Broadhead.

The Black Cats have been searching for competition in forward areas and identified the 23-year-old as a target earlier this summer.

Ross Stewart has made a superb start to the campaign, but Charlie Wyke’s departure for Wigan Athletic left Sunderland needing depth up front.

Will Grigg’s future also remains uncertain, with Lee Johnson suggesting last week that the striker could yet leave before the end of the window.
