Sunderland fans fearing the worst after missing out on striker target

Sunderland fans are starting to worry they won’t even have a squad next season, after they missed out on striker target Florian Kamberi.

Switzerland U21 striker Kamberi has joined Hibernian permanently, after spending the second half of last season loan with the Scottish side.

Kamberi struggled to break through with his parent club Grasshopper, but is an extremely exciting prospect, grabbing nine goals in 14 league appearances during his loan spell in Scotland.

According to Roker Report, the Black Cats had “made a six-figure bid” for the young striker on Thursday morning, but the 6 ft 2 forward, valued at £450,000 by Transfermarkt, has opted for familiar territory.

Jack Ross and Stuart Donald have got a lot of work on their hands at the Stadium of Light this summer, as several first team members are expected to leave the club.

The new men in charge would have loved to get fans on side with an exciting signing, but will now have to look elsewhere for the goals to fire them back into the Championship.
