Sunderland have completed a deal for Tottenham Hotspur left-back Dennis Cirkin on a three-year contract.
Enjoying a productive 2020/21 campaign, the Dublin-born left-back registered two assists in 14 appearances for the Spurs Under-23’s set up [Transfermarkt].
Now, he has made a surprise move to the North-East following recent developments.
Will Cirkin be a success at Sunderland in 2021/22?
Regarded as a coup for Lee Johnson’s men, highly-rated Cirkin joins Sunderland for an undisclosed fee and is rumoured to be ready to be involved in the Black Cats’ trip to Milton Keynes Dons this coming Saturday [Shields Gazette].
Positional counterpart Denver Hume’s future at Sunderland is now said to be unclear, owing to the move.
In light of this new signing, no wonder loads of Sunderland fans took to social media to voice their delight.
Sunderland AFC fans react:
Replying to the official Sunderland AFC Twitter account, here is how some supporters reacted to the transfer:
“singing of the summer”
“Sensible transfer recruitment this summer, things you love to see”
“Get in, from reading spurs fans opinions on this lad we’ve got a cracking left back here. Welcome to Sunderland“
