Sunderland looking at Sammut for at least one more game before making decision

Many Sunderland fans are loving life under Jack Ross at this moment in time as he’s finally identified the winning formula at the Stadium of Light, with plenty of success heading their way if they continue to destroy everyone in their path. 

Interestingly, it looks as if Jack Ross is still weighing up whether to sign a particular player, as according to Chronicle Live, Sunderland will see trialist Ruben Sammut play at least one more game for the U23 side before the Black Cats deciding whether to hand him a contract.

What’s the News?

Ruben Sammut has the opportunity to earn a contract on Wearside but it appears as if he hasn’t quite managed to show enough quality just yet, with at least one more game coming his way.

The midfielder is likely to feature in next week’s clash with Aston Villa after making an appearance in the recent 3-1 defeat to Stoke.

THE VERDICT:

Ruben Sammut spent the first half of this season on loan at Scottish Championship side Falkirk, and it’s safe to say that he showed glimpses of something special but couldn’t quite ensure consistency.

The Black Cats already have a number of midfielders at their disposal, with the likes of Max Power, Grant Leadbitter and Lee Cattermole impressing at this moment in time, but building for the future may be the current idea for Jack Ross as Sammut certainly has the potential to become a first-team regular.

But, fans shouldn’t be too excited about the club potentially signing him as it’s unlikely that he would play any part in their promotion push in the current campaign, and the Black Cats wanting to see him for at least one more game just shows that he hasn’t managed to prove himself up until this point.
