Sunderland fans are praising the heavens about their latest transfer move, as Jason Steele is set to join Premier League Brighton.
Plenty of things have gone wrong at the Stadium of Light in the last couple of years, but the biggest factor in the Sunderland’s downfall has to be their quite simply awful transfer business.
Even when the Black Cats were scraping their way to safety in the top tier, the club has been making poor decisions in the transfer market for quite some time.
One of the biggest issues with the squad last season was the lack of a solid goalkeeper, as the likes of Steele and Lee Camp just could not fill the boots of Jordan Pickford.
Fans were annoyed when they found out there is no sell-on clause in Pickford’s move to Everton this week, but this latest goalkeeper news has certainly cheered them up.
Steele joined the club in 2017, and did not impress in his 15 Championship starts last season.
Fans are almost in disbelief that he’s earned a move to the Premier League, but they are thankful nonetheless to get rid of an underwhelming player.
