‘Don’t think he’d be missed,’ ‘Needs to go’ – These Sunderland fans deliver their verdict on 25-year-old

Duncan Watmore has barely been seen in a Sunderland shirt in the last two years. The one time England Under 21 international has suffered from a succession of injuries which have hampered his promising career.

After battling back to fitness this season he was cruelly crocked by Wycombe’s Marcus Bean shortly after bagging a leveller against the Chairboys in March and sat out the rest of the season. He played 11 times in League One, just three of which were starts.

He’s likely to be available at the beginning of next season, but the Roker Report have posed the question; is he still a viable option for the Black Cats? as a relic from their Premier League days he is likely to be a big earner, certainly one of the better paid players at the club, does that mean he’s likely to be shown the door?

Or should he be given a chance to add to his 54 league outings in a Sunderland shirt? He’s started games in the Premier League, Championship and League One and perhaps with a run of appearances and some fitness, he could be a big player.

Here’s what a selection of Black Cats’ fans think about the situation on social media.

  1. There is no choice other than keep him, he only has 1 year left on his contract so any interested clubs will surely wait another season to see how his fitness is then step in and get him for nothing if he proves himself to be ok.
