Sunderland fans were in high spirits when Jack Rodwell looked to be nearing an exit, and they are hilariously bashing the midfielder now his contract has officially been terminated.
Sunderland announced yesterday that Rodwell will leave the club at the end of June.
The club said the decision was by mutual consent, though it seems fans suspect the 27 year-old would be happy to keep picking up a wage packet if it were up to him.
According to BBC, the ex Manchester City man earned £70,000 per week in the Black Cats’ season in the Championship, and would earn a further £43,000 per week in League One for the remaining year on his deal.

Rodwell swapped Manchester for Wearside in 2014 after making just 16 league appearances for Manchester City, but didn’t exactly impress fans at the Stadium of Light either.
The 27 year-old went an incredible 1,370 days without a win, and played just twice in the Championship last season.
Roker Report have made a superb Twitter thread of Rodwell’s finest moments, and you can find eight of the best reactions to his departure down below, along with one hilarious meme…

I think it would be fitting if the club named a stand after him, after all he spent 90% of his time sitting in it!!
