Southport’s Jack Rodwell signs for Sunderland

Southport’s Jack Rodwell has signed for Sunderland today (Tuesday 5th August 2014) in a £20M deal over 5 years.

The 23-year-old has struggled to break into the first team at the Etihad Stadium since arriving from Everton in a £12m move in 2012.

Sunderland boss Gus Poyet faced stiff competition from West Bromwich Albion and Southampton, but Rodwell will put pen to paper today after a medical.

Rodwell has made 26 appearances in all competitions in two seasons with City.
