‘Feel for him’, ‘Been a waste of time this lad’ – Many Sunderland fans react to latest player departure

Sunderland and West Ham United have come to an agreement which will see loan defender Frederik Alves return to the Hammers immediately.

The 22-year-old Danish centre-back signed a deal until the end of the season in the summer with the expectation that he would get regular game-time at the Stadium of Light.

Unfortunately for Alves though it never arrived as he played just three times in League One under Lee Johnson as well as six cup matches.

Sunderland sporting director Kristjaan Speakman stressed that it was a mutual decision and not West Ham opting to recall Alves from under the third tier side’s noses, but they could not guarantee Alves the minutes he needed going forward.

The decision to terminate Alves’ loan comes just hours after Football League World exclusively revealed that Johnson is eyeing up a reunion with towering defender Aden Flint, who is currently with Cardiff City but is out of contract at the end of the season.

Many Sunderland fans have now joined the clues up and believe that the 32-year-old could be Alves’ replacement as they have been reacting to the news of Alves’ departure back to the London Stadium on social media.
