Sunderland fans react as Sinclair set to sign

Lots of Sunderland fans have been reacting to the latest transfer news, as it looks like the Black Cats have finally signed a striker.

According to Roker Report, Watford youngster Jerome Sinclair is on Wearside today to complete a medical with Sunderland.

The 21 year-old will join 19 year-old Josh Maja on Jack Ross’ very short list of striker options.

The deal is expected to be a one-year loan, as the former Liverpool youngster has struggled to break into the first team with the Hornets.

The Black Cats have been extremely busy this summer, but they are ridiculously short of options up front, and the step down to League Two could be perfect for Sinclair.

He joined Liverpool as a teenager in 2011, and became the Reds’ youngest ever player when he came on as a substitute in a League Cup clash with West Brom.

Sinclair has massive potential, brilliant pace and a rocket right foot, but he is just lacking that killer instinct and extra confidence that all great strikers need.

Fans are hoping he can find it on Wearside, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
