‘Too early to judge’ – Were Sunderland wrong to seal this 2018 transfer deal? Opinion



Sunderland signed the talented midfielder Dylan McGeouch in 2018 from Scottish club Hibernian, but were they wrong to do so?

The Scotsman made over 100 appearances for Hibs following his 2015 move from Celtic, so it looked like a brilliant signing.

He has failed to set the world alight in the North East of England though, and a move away in the summer looks possible.

Were they wrong to sign him? 

We debate…

Lewis Steele

“He’s still fairly young. 

“I wouldn’t give up on him yet, especially with Cattermole and Leadbitter not able to play every week due to their age.

“I think he will come good next season.”

Gary Hutchinson 

“No, it was a wise move at the time and he still has value.

“Just because he’s not performed strongly this season doesn’t make it a bad signing.

“I think he’ll come good still, I’ve liked him on the occasions I’ve seen him play.”

Sam Rourke 

“Too early to judge.

“Some players take longer to adapt to the English game, and I think that’s the case with McGeouch so he needs to bide his time.

“He has a number of midfielders ahead of him in the pecking order, so will need to keep working hard in training to earn his spot, it’s harsh to say the Black Cats were wrong to sign him.”
