‘Brilliant news’, ‘Didn’t expect this’ – Many Sunderland fans react to significant player update



Elliot Embleton has signed a new three-and-a-half year deal at Sunderland, the club have confirmed this morning.

Embleton’s original deal was set to expire at the end of this season, but the club have moved quick to extend his contract after an impressive season so far.

The 22-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at Blackpool, playing a key role in helping the Tangerines win promotion via the play-offs.

He has since returned to the Stadium of Light and established himself as a key player under Lee Johnson, scoring two goals and providing three assists in nine League One starts.

Embleton says he is “buzzing” to sign a new deal, adding: “It’s a very proud moment for me and my family, and hopefully I can keep showing the supporters what I can do on the pitch. I’ve been here a long time, so signing this contract is special and now, I’m really looking forward to pushing on”

It seems that he isn’t the only who who is buzzing, too…
