Antoine Semenyo has taken to Instagram to say goodbye to Sunderland as his loan deal from Bristol City comes to an end.
The Black Cats, who have missed out on a gaining a play-off place this season, will look to rebuild their side this summer. The Wearsiders are set for another year in League One after the 2019/20 was ended yesterday via a points-per-game system which determined that they finish the campaign in eighth.
Semenyo, who joined Sunderland in January from Bristol City, will now return to his parent club ahead of the 2020/21 season.
Semenyo made seven appearances in the league for Sunderland but the London-born left winger failed to find the back of the net or gain an assist (as per Transfermarkt).
It remains to be seen where the youngster’s future now lies, having had loan spells with Bath City and Newport County over the last few seasons. A Bristol City academy graduate, Semenyo has played 16 times so far for their first team.
Semenyo’s exit could be the first of many from Sunderland this summer, with the club now headed for another season in League One.
He impressed plenty of the club’s fans during his stay at the club, although his lack of goals and assists leaves question marks on whether or not his signing was worthwhile. That being said, a potential cut-price move would be hard to reject for Sunderland if they decide to back in for him, as they will likely need to do things on the cheap this summer.
Will Sunderland miss Semenyo next season? Let us know in the comments section below…
