Many Sunderland fans have taken to Twitter to react to the news that the club are seemingly set to sign midfielder Corry Evans in the near future.
The Northern Irishman is currently a free agent after leaving Blackburn Rovers this summer and now appears set to complete a move to the Stadium of Light as Lee Johnson looks to strengthen his squad further.
Evans is vastly experienced at Football League level and played north of 200 games for Rovers during his eight season stay at Ewood Park.
If the Black Cats get the deal over the line, it will be their second signing in quick succession, with the club having recently signed Alex Pritchard on a free transfer after he left Huddersfield Town.
Naturally the new of the potential arrival of Evans didn’t take long to reach the Sunderland faithful, with many taking to social media to air their views on the matter in hand.
How well do you know Sunderland’s celebrity supporters? – Can you score 20/20?
Here, we take a look at some of the best responses from the supporters on Twitter.
I like this. Has done a good job for Rovers for 8 years. Can see him protecting back 4 and combining well with Neil/Winchester, and 31 is still a good age for that position in L1.
