Sunderland: Fans issue angry response to 16 y/o’s Man United talks

Sunderland: Fans issue angry response to 16 y/o’s Man United talks - Sunderland

Sunderland fans have reacted to a recent report claiming young academy talent Joe Hugill is set to join Premier League side Manchester United.

16-year-old Hugill has been impressing over the last few years in the Black Cats’ academy, and his form has continued this season, being handed a chance to feature for the club’s U23 side.

Having developed at a fast rate, the young striker has gained interest from a number of clubs, including Man United, who are now said to have won the race for his signature.

Which Sunderland manager has the best win percentage of all time?

Hugill is unable to sign a professional contract until he turns 17 later this year, meaning he is free to make a switch to Old Trafford.

Sunderland Echo report that both Sunderland and officials from the Premier League side have agreed a compensation package and that a deal is expected to be announced soon.

Hugill will be the second player to join United from the Wearside club in 2020, following 16-year-old Logan Pye, who made the switch earlier this year.

For Sunderland fans, Hugill’s expected move to the Red Devils is just another one of a number of talents to leave the club, with Sam Greenwood (Arsenal), Luca Stephenson (Liverpool) and Luke Hewitson (Liverpool), all moving on also.
