Sunderland failed to secure any points against Portsmouth yesterday as they were beaten 3-1, which has knocked them back slightly in the race for promotion.
The Black Cats still have games in hand but a win in yesterday’s game could have put them in a fantastic position, so Jack Ross will definitely be disappointed in his troops.
Although, supporters received a huge boost recently, as according to the Chronicle Live, Lynden Gooch has stated that he is closing to agreeing a new contract at Sunderland.
Lynden Gooch has confirmed he is close to agreeing a new contract on Wearside.
Indeed, it was previously stated that a deal between the American and the club was understood to be close, and now the 22-year-old has spoken about the current situation, here’s what he had to say:
“Yeah, it’s close,”
“It’s obviously in the hands of my team and the club.”
“I’ve said for a long time that this club means a lot to me and if I can try and get the club back to the good times, then I’ll do so.”
Lynden Gooch is enjoying arguably his best season at the Stadium of Light, so it comes as no surprise that the club’s chiefs are desperate to tie him down to a long-term deal.
The American will play a huge part in the rest of their campaign and has already secured a number of goals and assists, with plenty more to come from him in the race for promotion.
