Another day, another signing. Despite the six goals at St Mirren, we still need a boost in the striker department, but it’s good to greet the arrival of Luke O’Nien, another man who actually wants to play at the Stadium of Light for Sunderland AFC. Salut! Sunderland extends its customary greetings to a new Lad.

SAFC.com says he joins us from Wycombe Wanderers as one of those irritating and absurd (Monsieur Salut says) “undisclosed fee” signings and has put his signature to a two-year deal.

He’s Jack Ross’s 10th signing, 23, a midfielder and began his career at Watford and describes the move as “a huge honour because it’s such a big club”.

One final quote (read the coverage at the club site):

The direction of the club is only going to be up, and I’m going to do everything I can to help get the club to back where it belongs.

Wikipedia adds (League One is a steep learning curve):

O’Nien was born in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire. His father Terry was a professional golfer. O’Nien qualifies to play international football for both England as well as Singapore He qualifies to play for Singapore through his Singapore-born maternal grandfather; his great-uncle was politician Lim Kim San.

    I’m getting a little concerned when all our new signings are being unveiled in red shorts! Hope this isn’t an indication of what we’ll be seeing on Saturday.

      Well, the club shop is advertising the new home kit for sale complete with red shorts. I think that’s what we’re in for. Prefer black but not too bothered. More excited by our new signings and football being back.
