Reports suggest Joel Asoro will leave Sunderland to join Swansea City, and fans are split over losing the young winger.
According to BBC, Sunderland have accepted a bid for Asoro in the region of £2m.
New Swansea manager Graham Potter is said to be a long time admirer of the player, who has just 12 months left on his contract.
Asoro wants to leave, which has plenty of fans feeling glad to see the back of him.

However, there are more than a few fans that are disappointed they are losing the youngster, who has shown flashes of major potential during his time on Wearside.
The 19 year-old moved to the Stadium of Light in 2016, and scored three times in 27 league appearances for the Black Cats.
Asoro has played at multiple youth levels for Sweden, and is fantastic when he is dribbling directly at defenders.
Still, his end product has been poor at times and he can be very wasteful, perhaps why fans are so split over the deal. You can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
2 million for a player who will be worth more than 10X that in the next few years. come on

Disappointing outcome considering you’d think he’d be going to someone with a degree of potential and class but a relegated and relatively low profile outpost seems weird. Jog on is my view and £2m is decent – got that for David Bellion from Man U!!

If he doesn’t want to be here and fight to get this club back up let him do one .we only want players here with pride and passion.

I really liked Asoro as well, shame but, if he doesn’t want to play then maybe it’s for the best

Bad deal for us unless there are significant sell on clauses. We now need three strikers in. Can’t see it happening. #safc

He’s better than Gooch and Honeyman. We’ll get over it, though.

Bit of a shame but if he’s not up for the challenge cash in but think we could of pushed for more
