We have signed George Dobson on a three-year deal from Walsall for an undisclosed fee. Dobson started his career at Arsenal before moving to West Ham United and also had six-month spell Sparta Rotterdam.
Dobson said: “It’s been a long few weeks, so to finally get the deal done is a dream come true. I played in the same league last year, but the difference in facilities is frightening, so the opportunity to use them every day to improve my game is something I’m really looking forward to. I always play with pride and passion, and I can’t wait to get started.”
Jack Ross added: “George has been on our radar for a while, so I’m delighted we were able to finalise a deal and bring him to the football club. He’s still young, but he is an experienced player with over 100 senior games under his belt, and throughout his career he has demonstrated quality, maturity and leadership. I’m confident he will thrive under the pressure that comes with playing for Sunderland and become an even better player in the process.”
