Sunderland fans on social media have been reacting to the latest transfer rumour to emerge concerning the Black Cats. 

This comes after Roker Report revealed via Twitter that Sunderland are “exploring the possibility of bringing former Vito Mannone back to the Stadium of Light”.

This post then quickly grabbed the attention of a lot of Sunderland fans, who were not shy in sharing their thoughts on this latest claim.

So, what did these Sunderland fans have to say in response to this claim about a potential move for Mannone?

“Wow”

@Keeler966

“Bring him home pls”

@joshpaul1898

“Make this happen please”

@Jay_Alderson04

“This one’s got me excited!”

@fbm8665

“I’ll have a slice of that, exactly what we need.”

@RobboK1984

“This would be absolutely amazing !!!”

@IyazMan

Looking at the replies to this post, it’s safe to say that these Sunderland fans would be thrilled to see Mannone make a return to the Wearside club this summer.

Would you like to see Mannone return to Sunderland?

Yes

Yes

No

No

This just goes to show how much love and admiration these Sunderland fans have for their former shot-stopper, who made 80 appearances for the club during his spell there.

In our view, if Sunderland are indeed interested in signing Mannone again on a deal that is financially viable for them, then this could be a good bit of business from them as the 33-year-old has bags of experience under his belt and knowledge of the football club that could well help some of the younger players.
