Sunderland fans love swoop for McGeouch

Sunderland have completed the signing of Scottish international Dylan McGeouch, and fans are super excited about the Hibernian midfielder.

According to Roker Report, Sunderland were hoping to complete the signing of McGeouch over the weekend, but the transfer was delayed as the player was attending a family member’s wedding.

The club has now confirmed the move, and the midfielder will become the Black Cats’ fifth signing so far this summer.

The twice-capped Scottish international had an excellent season in for Hibs, but will sign for free after opting not to renew his contract.

McGeouch is only 25, but has gone from strength to strength since swapping Celtic for Hibs in 2015, earning himself a spot in last season’s SPFL Premiership Team of the Year.

He was also voted Hibs’ player of the year and player’s player of the year, so getting the midfielder on a free signing is one hell of a coup for the Black Cats.

Jack Ross is building quite the Scottish contingent at the Stadium of Light, and fans are particularly happy with this deal.
