Lots of Sunderland fans have been reacting to a promising piece of transfer news, as the Black Cats have signed Tottenham wonderkid Kazaiah Sterling.
Sunderland were dangerously close to ending the transfer window with just one fit centre forward, and while they may have left it late, fans have to be happy with the arrival of Sterling.
The Tottenham youngster will join on loan until the end of the season, the Black Cats confirmed on Thursday evening.
Sterling has made two senior appearances for Spurs despite only turning 20 in November, making his debut back in December 2017 in a Champions League clash against APOEL Nicosia.
Former Wigan & Fulham man, Jimmy Bullard recently showed that he’s still got it! Check out the video below…
The 20 year-old has scored four times and added two assists in seven youth Premier League games so far this season, per Transfermarkt, and was also on the bench for the senior side’s recent win over Fulham at Craven Cottage.
Sterling is extremely fast, very intelligent for such a young player, and most importantly of all he knows how to stick the ball in the back of the net.
Leading goalscorer Josh Maja left the club this month of course, so Sterling has a lot of ground to make up.

I'd never heard of Marco Gabiadini or Kevin Phillips, so I'll wait and see the lad play.
Welcome to Sunderland mate, wish you all the success in the world.

Sounds like a panic signing to me. But once he puts on that shirt, he will have my full support.
