Losing Our Sess Appeal

by MartinW Monday, 03 February 2014 09:40 PM

This summer has been the fifth consecutive transfer window when I have been half expecting, and fully dreading, the news that broke in recent days: that we have sold Stephane Sessegnon. Finally, and perhaps inevitably given the extent of changes that have been made this summer, it happened. Regardless of what else has (or hasn’t) happened this summer...

Perhaps there is one big signing on the horizon for Sunderland. If reports are to be believed, Gus Poyet's unsurprising penchant for fellow South Americans (mainly Argentinians) looks set to land a little bombshell in Ignacio Scocco.

It took a little digging – but let me tell you just who our new Swedish wonder kid is.

Valentin Day

Right. Firstly, sorry about the title - one of them 'couldn't help myself' moments! The much-travelled 26 year-old Frenchman’s free transfer to Sunderland had long been agreed, with confirmation on 01.07.2013 that he signs a three-year contract. Valentin Roberge was born in Montreuil, which is a suburban area in Paris. As you would expect, he spent his youth career in his hometown which ended with Paris FC before moving to Guingamp.
