SUNDERLAND ON THE VERGE OF ANOTHER BARGAIN SIGNING AFTER O’BRIEN DEAL

Sunderland could complete the signing of another free-agent with Bailey Wright expected to join Aiden O’Brien at the Stadium of Light over the next few days, according to the Northern Echo.
Everyone on Wearside might have feared that they’d never escape aLeague One nightmare when the global health crisis reared it’s ugly head in March, robbing the Black Cats of a play-off challenge as well as much of their summer budget.
But, since the transfer window swung open earlier this month, Sunderland have set about reminding everyone that you don’t need money to pull off the odd inspired signing.



In former Millwall striker O’Brien, Phil Parkinson now has an adaptable and proven League One forward in his ranks.
The Republic of Ireland international scored 23 goals in two seasons at third-tier level between 2015 and 2017, firing Millwall to promotion along the way.



And, according to reports in the north east, Sunderland will follow up O’Brien with another free-agent signing.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] Wright’s loan spell at the Stadium of Light never really got going thanks to a combination of injuries and an ongoing global crisis.
But, whenever the Australian was available, he looked head and shoulders above the rest.
Wright, who was happy and settled on Wearside, only made five appearances for Sunderland – but the Black Cats won all but one of those, keeping four clean sheets to boot.
The former Preston defender has since been released by Bristol City and can be snapped up permanently for absolutely nothing.

No doubting Wright is a good un but a bit too much like Kirchoff for me regarding made of glass. Injured to easily.

This other bloke already signed is going to be a big hit with the fans methinks.

Sunderland AFC are delighted to announce the signing of Bailey Wright.
The Australian defender, who impressed throughout a loan spell at the Stadium of Light last season, returns to Wearside on a two-year deal.
Wright becomes Phil Parkinson’s second signing ahead of the 2020-21 campaign, moving to the North East on a permanent deal after his three-year stay at Bristol City ended last month.
Following his arrival, the Black Cats kept five clean sheets in six games with Wright at the heart of the defence before an ankle injury, and the coronavirus pandemic, brought a premature end to the campaign.
The 28-year-old has a wealth of experience under his belt, having made almost 300 appearances in English football, as well as earning 24 caps for Australia.
Wright gained promotion to the Sky Bet Championship during his eight-year stint with Preston North End, and following his move to Bristol City in 2017, he was named as the Robins’ club captain.
After returning to the Stadium of Light, Wright said: “It feels really good to get the deal done and I just can’t wait to get up to the North East and join the squad. Although I only worked with the manager for a short spell, I really enjoyed the structure and discipline of the team. He expects his players to give everything on the pitch and be good people, and we have that culture within the dressing room. We are heading in the right direction and I’m very confident we can achieve our ambitions next season.”
Manager Phil Parkinson added: “I’m delighted to have signed Bailey. He’s a very good player, but he’s also an excellent character and leader. He’s a really important signing for us and because of his quality, there was plenty of competition for his signature, so I’d like to credit the owner and Jim Rodwell for getting the deal over the line.”

Delighted, but now we need another big tough defender beside him, plus Willis,Flanners and young Taylor and then a proper right wing back so that 09 can get forward.

And we haven’t spent any of the war chest yet  Laughing

Sunderland keeping tabs on Kosovo international Arbenit Xhemajli, as they cast their net wide
Centre-back Arbenit Xhemajli is due to be a free agent this summer, and Sunderland have been scouting the Swiss-born 22-year-old

Sunderland are keeping tabs on Kosovo international Arbenit Xhemajli ahead of a potential summer move for the centre-back.
The Black Cats are believed to casting their scouting net far and wide this summer as Phil Parkinson looks to strengthen his side ahead of the League One campaign. And 22-year-old Xhemajli, plying his trade in the Swiss Super League, has been identified as a potential target, Chronicle Live understands.


The young defender made his Kosovo international debut last October in a friendly win over Gibraltar.
Swiss-born, he came through the ranks at FC Zurich before joining Neuchatel Xamax FCS in 2017. He made his senior debut for them that season as they earned promotion to the Swiss Super League.

Last term they managed to stay in the top flight after winning the relegation play-off. With still one game left of the current campaign due to a temporary suspension because of COVID-19, Xamax are this time already relegated.
But with exciting prospect Xhemajli out of contract, it is expected he will move on this summer, with Sunderland keeping a close eye on developments. The Swiss season will be completed on Monday evening.



The 6ft3in defender is seen by Sunderland as a player with huge potential, and one whom could rise with them through the divisions should they achieve their goals.
Having released three centre-backs this season, they're in the market to strengthen their defensive options, although they have been boosted by both Tom Flanagan and Brandon Taylor extending their stays, while Bailey Wright joined permanently too. But those three only add to Jordan Willis for just four men competing for three starting spots, while Conor McLaughlin is seen as a versatile back-up option.
Despite Xamax's poor league placing this term, Xhemajli has impressed. They've conceded the second-highest amount of goals in the Swiss Super League, but were twice beaten 6-0 in games where he was absent. Scratch off this 12 goals against and they'd have only conceded two more than FC St. Gallen who will finish the season as runners-up.

If it's true we're looking at him I wonder who is responsible for this sensible change in recruitment policy where we look at young players who can either go through the divisions with us or be sold on for a profit?

Oh hang on...there's rumours about Danny Graham as well.

Anyway, this one looks like a good move.
