Sunderland: Fans still angry at club’s decision to sell George Honeyman - League One

Plenty of Sunderland fans expressed their anger at the club’s decision to sell George Honeyman to Hull City last summer.

Born in Prudhoe, Honeyman joined the Black Cats’ academy setup at the age of 10 and gradually developed through the club’s various youth teams. Spending 11 years in the academy, the midfielder made his professional debut in 2015 against Bradford in the FA Cup under the management of former boss Gustavo Poyet.

A one-month loan spell with Gateshead saw the youngster gain some first team football before returning to his parent club for the 2016/17 campaign, which would end in relegation to the Championship.

Dropping down to England’s second tier, Honeyman saw first team football become more frequent and it stayed that way through to the summer of 2019, during which the Wearside club were relegated again, this time to League One. Despite his loyalty to the club, Honeyman was made available for transfer last summer and he ended his 14-year spell on Wearside by joining Championship side Hull City.

Reacting to Honeyman’s comments, these Sunderland fans on Twitter voiced their anger and upset at the club’s decision to allow him to leave:
