Sunderland striker Jerome Sinclair has returned to Watford after the Premier League side opted to recall the striker from his loan spell with the Black Cats.
Sinclair’s return was confirmed on Sunderland’s official website, and manager Jack Ross was full of praise for the departing striker:
“Jerome has been a credit to himself and his club Watford in his time here.
“I cannot speak highly enough of him and how he has applied himself during his loan spell and as I club we have conveyed this to Watford.
“Everyone at Sunderland AFC wishes Jerome the very best in the next stage of his career.”
Sinclair made 13 appearances in total for Sunderland, but was limited to just seven starts, with competition for places extremely competitive in Ross’ side this season.
Sunderland are currently challenging for an automatic promotion spot in League One this season, and will be keen to bolster their attacking options with Sinclair’s departure.
They have already made a bid for Wigan striker Will Grigg, according to Alan Nixon.
This doesn’t come as a surprise to me at all.
Sinclair has a lot of potential, but he hasn’t been given the chance of a run of games for Sunderland this season.
There isn’t a chance we’re going to see him break into the starting XI at Watford, so they are surely eyeing a potential destination for the forward for the rest of this year’s campaign.
