Confirmed: Steve Harper Signs

Sunderland have announced the signing of Steve Harper on a short-term deal. Sunderland were left with just two senior goalkeepers, Vito Mannone and Jordan Pickford, after Costel Pantilimon left the club to join Watford for an undisclosed fee on Tuesday evening. Sam Allardyce has moved to rectify that situation by bringing in a vastly experienced 'keeper as third choice, as we speculated would happen earlier in the week, by signing ex-Newcastle goalkeeper Steve Harper on a deal until the end of the season. The Easington-born 40-year-old will provide back-up to both Mannone and Pickford, as...

Replacing Pantilimon - Four Freebies SAFC Could Sign On Short Term Deals

Now that Costel Pantilimon has left Sunderland, Big Sam has the opportunity to bring in an experienced hand to help with the development of Jordan Pickford - who should he go for? Although it's entirely likely that Sam Allardyce is planning to place faith in young Polish goalkeeper Max Stryjek as our third choice stopper, there are players currently without clubs that, in the short term, could add balance to the options Sam has available whilst also aiding the development of Jordan Pickford.

The Romanian international joins Watford for an undisclosed fee after he signed a three-and-a-half year deal. The 28-year-old signed for Sunderland in July 2014 to compete with Vito Mannone and had to wait for his chance as Mannone was the club's reigning player of the year but after the Italian started the season badly, culminating in the 8-0 defeat at Southampton and a...
