The 4th signing of the summer revolution has been announced on the official website just as most of us were trying to decide if the result of the England – Belgium match was actually beneficial to the national side’s ambitions.

Tom Flanagan comes to us from Burton Albion where he played mostly at full back last season but he is a versatile player who can play anywhere across the back line.

Was he unwanted at Burton or was his sale a necessity to balance the books at the Pirelli?

It would appear from manager Nigel Clough’s comments that it was more a case of the latter. Whatever he is a Northern Ireland international and becomes Jack Ross’s 4th signing of the summer having penned a 2 year deal. With two defenders, a goalkeeper and a midfielder/come forward now signed the new squad is taking shape before the pre-season trip to Portugal with the three players we have in Russia, Khazri, Oviedo and Djilibodji (officially still on loan until Sunday and so out there watching his nation having not been selected for the World Cup campaign by Senegal) likely to be on their way soon and with Lens and Borini off the wage bill on Sunday, we are beginning to see what sort of squad we will have for life in the third tier.

Anyway if you haven’t already you can read the official club announcement by following this link.

Meanwhile welcome to Sunderland Tom.
