Sunderland defender Tommy Robson has joined Falkirk on loan until the end of the season, according to the club’s official website.
The 22-year-old will link up with the Bairns when the transfer window opens on the 1st January, and will spend six months north of the border.
Robson spent the second half of last season at Irish side Limerick, and has been largely outcasted since returning to the Black Cats, being forced to train alone at the club.
It appears the player has no future at The Stadium of Light, and it is likely the defender will depart the Wearsiders on a permanent basis in the summer.
Robson has been treated rather harshly at Sunderland, and will look forward to escaping his Stadium of Light nightmare in the new year.
A move to Scotland could help the player rediscover the potential that assisted him through the youth-team set-up, and keeping the Bairns in the Scottish Championship this semester will now become Robson’s primary target.
If the youngster plays well during his loan spell then clubs will sit up and take notice of the player’s ability, and Robson shouldn’t encounter too many problems earning a permanent deal at a new club in the summer.
Sunderland fans, why didn’t things work out for Robson at the club? Have your say below…
