Stewart has penned an initial two-and-a-half-year deal at the Stadium of Light, with the club having an option for a further year, as he arrives from Scottish Premiership side Ross County. One fan said they were ‘delighted’ after seeing the announcement.
The 24-year-old featured 19 times in the SPFL, picking up two goals and one assist (WhoScored). Albeit this is not the best tally for an attacker, his in-game stats show he can be a huge threat for the League One side. Stewart has managed on average 2.1 shots and 1.2 key passes per game this season.
An attacking signing is always a good thing, especially with Sunderland right in the thick of the play-off race. Manager Lee Johnson bringing in another forward to bolster the squad as they push for promotion has rightfully excited a lot of the Black Cats fan base.
Here is what these Sunderland fans had to say following the signing:
“Delighted with this signing, welcome to Sunderland mate”
“And suddenly a shocking transfer window has turned into a credible one. Depth at left-back? Pace out wide? Progressive passer in midfield? Added goals upfront? Hopefully Stewart can help Wyke with the goals and fire us to the Championship. #SAFC”
“Love that lads, now announce takeover”
“Let’s go baby”
“Welcome aboard the crazy train that is SAFC! Good luck fella”
“As long as this lad puts the effort in and plays for the shirt, I will be happy with the signing.”
“Some solid signings, got a whole new left side. Let’s go on a run and we can make top 2!”
