GRAHAM HAS LEFT THE BUILDING



Danny Graham has left the club by mutual consent. The striker made 51 appearances across two spells for club, scoring one league goal and originally costing £5m from Swansea, making the ridiculous £3m we spent on Will Grigg (5 goals in 45) almost look a bargain!


Graham said: “At this point in my career, it is no secret that I want to be playing regular football, so I appreciate the understanding shown by the club in allowing me to pursue the opportunity to do this. I would like to thank everyone at SAFC, especially my team-mates and the supporters, for their backing throughout my two spells at the Stadium of Light. I wish you all the very best for the future.”


Kristjaan Speakman added: “We’ve had some really pragmatic conversations with Danny and there was a mutual understanding that this was the best avenue to take considering our activity in the transfer window and his desire to be involved more than he has been. He’s been a top professional and we wish him well for the future.”
