Sunderland fans react to Denver Hume contract announcement

Some Sunderland fans have reacted to the news Denver Hume has signed a new contract.

The club have revealed on their website the ace has put pen to paper on a two-year deal with an option of a further year.

The 23-year-old’s contract originally expired at the end of last season. He was in talks over a new deal, but conversations went on far longer than expected.

Hume has been with the Wearside outfit since the age of eight, making his way through the ranks to the senior team.

He has made 78 appearances for Sunderland’s first-team and has now extended his stay at the Stadium of Light.

What-If EVERY Premier League Team Was A Country

The full-back is currently out with a hamstring injury he picked up in the play-offs last season.

Hume contract finally gives Sunderland clarity at left-back

This season has started fairly well for Sunderland, who sit at the top of the League One table.

However, the one area of uncertainty has been at left-back, where 19-year-old Dennis Cirkin has been filling the role.

Going through an entire season with just one left-sided player would have been madness from Lee Johnson’s men.

In that regard, a new contract for Hume is welcome news. His experience and ability can help create healthy competition for the starting place.

At 19, there will be times Cirkin will need a rest, hence why re-signing Hume is a smart decision.
