The Northern Echo journalist Scott Wilson has now revealed some transfer news on Sunderland target Jack Rudoni.
The Lowdown: Bids made
It had been reported that the Stadium of Light outfit had made bids for Rudoni, but Huddersfield Town, Bristol City and Blackpool were also in the race to sign the AFC Wimbledon midfield player.
The Latest: Huddersfield bound
Taking to Twitter, Wilson has revealed that Rudoni is now heading to Huddersfield, in what is a ‘blow’ to Alex Neil’s side:
“Blow for SAFC as Jack Rudoni heads to Huddersfield. Four-year deal in the pipeline. Around £600,000 up front, with total deal potentially worth around £1m. Black Cats had two earlier bids turned down…”
The Verdict: Shame
It is a shame that the Wearside club have missed out on signing Rudoni to one of their rivals in the Championship.
Dubbed an ‘excellent‘ player by former Dons boss Mark Robinson, his 19 goal contributions were more than any Black Cats midfielder managed last term, which is impressive considering that he was playing for a relegated team.
Should Sunderland sign Rudoni?
Nonetheless, Rudoni is only 21 years of age, and so has the potential to develop into one of the Championship’s best midfielders, should he get off to a good start at the Terriers.
All in all, SAFC will be disappointed that they have missed out on this deal.
