Sunderland legend Gary Rowell delighted with club’s new signings

GARY Rowell says Sunderland fans can be delighted with the way the transfer window is going so far.

And the Roker legend believes three or four more signings – with Charles N’Zogbia preferably among them – will see supporters starting the season with more excitement and optimism than they have done for many years.

He said: “You get used to the transfer market being really sluggish in June, but this season it has been busy – and we seem to be the busiest club of the lot.

“It’s great to see the club so much on the front foot and also bringing in players so early, because it’s a big advantage to a squad when so many new signings are there from day one of pre-season.

“Footballers are adaptable people, but there’s no doubt being there at the start of pre-season and spending a month getting to know your new team-mates is a massive help in terms of settling in.
