Sunderland have finally brought in Charlie Wyke from Bradford, on a three-year deal, for an undisclosed fee. Middlesbrough born Wyke boats 23 goals and 13 assists in 62 appearances for Bradford. He said: “I’m delighted to get it over the line so that I can concentrate on my football again. It’s a massive club, and coming from the north east, I know exactly how much it means to people. The one thing that everybody wants here is promotion, so we have to get that and win as many games as we can. I can’t wait to get started.”
