As to be expected, a number of Black Cats supporters have been giving their thoughts to the news on social media.
The 23-year-old was technically a free agent since July 1 after his previous deal at the Stadium of Light expired.
The left-back was still training at the Academy of Light base despite not being under contract at the club, but he is once again a Sunderland player and will provide cover to Dennis Cirkin for Lee Johnson.
How do you feel about Hume's new deal?
Happy, it makes sense!
Not happy at all!
Sunderland fans react
Sunderland posted the news on Hume via social media and here is what these fans had to say in reply, with one ‘gutted’ and another labelling the left-back as ‘woeful’ – potentially due to his situation being drawn-out over the summer or a spate of much-criticised performances in the past.
“My day is ruined”
“He’s absolutely woeful”
“Absolutely gutted, we were literally his last resort, couldn’t have been more disappointed with a signing than I am with this one”
“Nobody else wanted him so he signed a new deal, brilliant have fun warming the bench for the rest of the season. Should have been queuing up at the job centre Monday morning.”
“Didn’t want to be here, thought he could get a Championship move but no one came calling. Tail between his legs and needs to prove he wants to be here now or the fans won’t get behind him.”
