‘Some fans wait for any opportunity to have a moan’ – These Sunderland fans react to latest club announcement

Sunderland winger Aiden McGeady has joined Charlton Athletic on loan until the end of the season, as revealed by their official website.

McGeady has 95 international caps for Ireland and began his career with Celtic, before a big-money move into Russian football with Spartak Moscow. Following his stint in Russia, he signed for Everton, where he made 32 Premier League appearances.

He spent loan spells at Sheffield Wednesday and Preston, scoring eight goals in 35 outings for the latter, before linking up with the Black Cats in 2017. He’s since made 98 appearances for the Mackems, scoring 27 times.

He was told he could leave the club by Phil Parkinson earlier this month and it’s believed he was the highest earner at the club.

“He brings goals, he brings assists, he can make something out of nothing,” said Charlton boss Lee Bowyer. “He’s got experience, he’s played in Europe and for his country. We’re bringing in a very good, experienced player.

“Coming into the back end of the season experience can be important.”

The move has been widely welcomed by Sunderland fans, although his choice of destination has left some perplexed after last season’s play-off final, as you’ll see below.
