Luke O’Nien has won Sunderland Player of the Month for September, as confirmed on the club’s official Twitter page.
Will Jack Ross finish the season at Sunderland?
The 24-year-old was voted for by the Black Cats supporters ahead of the likes of Max Power, who has been lauded following his wonder strike:

O’Nien played every minute of Sunderland’s four League One games in September, as the team picked up eight points, as per WhoScored.
He finished the month off in style, scoring his first goal of the season when he lobbed the onrushing goalkeeper to help secure a 2-1 win over MK Dons, showing his delight with his celebration as he jumped about looking unsure about what to do with himself.
The 24-year-old is a popular man at the Stadium of Light, as highlighted by the response to his September recognition.
A selection of Twitter reaction to the announcement, including posts from buzzing Sunderland fans, can be seen below:
