Loads of Sunderland fans have been running the rule over their dramatic late move for Will Grigg, as the Northern Ireland international has joined on a three-and-a-half year deal, the club has confirmed.
Sunderland were a poor deadline day away from entering the second half of their League One campaign with just one senior striker, but the Black Cats pulled off three impressive deals on the final day of the January window.
Former Wigan & Fulham man, Jimmy Bullard recently showed that he’s still got it! Check out the video below…
Last but certainly not least, the club wrapped up a deal for Grigg late on Thursday night, a deal that has got fans absolutely buzzing.
The 27 year-old has scored 96 League One goals in 260 appearances in the third tier, per Transfermarkt, and this kind of recognised goalscoring presence could well be the difference between automatic promotion and the gruelling gauntlet of the playoffs.
Fans are loving the move, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
Well done to Stewart and co 🥂👏🏻👏🏻

I hope all the so called ‘fans’ who tweeted Stewart are feeling really stupid. Feeling more confident about automatic promotion now.
