One man who the Black Cats may now regret losing is Wahbi Khazri.
The attacker has reached new heights since moving to France as he continues to impress at current club AS Saint-Etienne, having produced 14 goals and eight assists in 30 appearances.
Sunderland only sold the attacker for £6.3 million (as per Transfermarkt) back in the summer, but that was quite a good fee for the Wearside club to receive at the time as he completely flopped at the Stadium of Light. However, seeing that he’s now reportedly more than doubled his value may fill Stewart Donald with regret.
Fans certainly won’t have fond memories of the winger as he contributed towards the Black Cats’ downfall during their last couple of seasons in the Premier League. He offered absolutely nothing on the field most of the time and went on to produce very little during his time in England.
His first season at the club was hugely disappointing as he only managed to bag two goals in 14 appearances. And, the Tunisia international failed to help Sunderland avoid relegation back in the 2016-17 season as he somehow managed to disappoint even more, producing just one goal and one assist.
Jack Ross has certainly improved things this season and the players he currently has at his disposal are working towards getting the club back to where they belong, with Khazri now erased from the minds of supporters.
Sunderland fans, surely it must come as a shock to see Wahbi Khazri doing so well? Join the discussion by commenting down below!
