Sunderland: Many fans buzzing as Will Grigg departs

Image for Sunderland: Many fans buzzing as Will Grigg departs

A lot of Sunderland fans have erupted on Twitter following the departure of Will Grigg.

The Northern Ireland international was signed on a transfer deadline day back in January 2019 for an eye-watering £4 million, a League One transfer record fee, however, in that time he has managed to score just eight goals in 62 appearances for the Black Cats.

Will Sunderland earn promotion this season?





Grigg also spent the second half of last season out on loan at MK Dons following the appointment of current manager Lee Johnson and the boss must not see the striker in his plans as he has been shipped out on loan again, this time for the entire season with Rotherham United.

Many Sunderland fans are delighted on Twitter with the latest Grigg news.

What have these Sunderland fans had to say?

“This day just gets better and better doesn’t it”


“Highlight of our window”


“I’m chuffed to bits! Thanks admin and goodnight!”


“It’s the best news I’ve ever woken up to. As close to a perfect transfer window as you can get.”


“Loan? Making sure he doesn’t score against in the league. Best chairman in the world”


“What a sweet end to a phenomenal transfer window for this club.”


“Things you love to see”


Grigg arrived on Wearside with a pretty big reputation coming from then Championship side Wigan Athletic and had just scored 19 goals in the Latics’ promotion season a year earlier but those fortunes never followed him up north.
