Sunderland Confirm Signing of Valentin Roberge On a 3-Year Deal: Daily Soccer Report

Valentin Roberge 600x337 Sunderland Confirm Signing of Valentin Roberge On a 3 Year Deal: Daily Soccer Report

It’s been a busy day at the Stadium of Light, as Sunderland today announced the signing of French defender Valentin Roberge as well as confirming the signings of defender Modibo Diakite from Lazio and midfielder Cabral from FC Basel.

Manager Paolo Di Canio is planning on overhauling his squad this summer after shipping out Phil Bardsley, Matt Kilgallon and Titus Bramble. More signings are expected as Sunderland are in talks to sign Argentina international full back Gino Peruzzi. Plus, I wouldn’t be surprised if Di Canio has more signings up his sleeve.

Sunderland next season are going to be mystery. They could be a force, or it could be a team that takes time to gel. What’s your opinion about the changes Di Canio is making at Sunderland? Is he on the right track, or should he buy more experienced footballers? Have your say in the comments section below.

One Response to Sunderland Confirm Signing of Valentin Roberge On a 3-Year Deal: Daily Soccer Report

  1. Iain Foulds says:

    Lot of young players coming in from various European leagues, so it’s hard to see how they’ll all gel and be ready to roll in the Premier League right away. At least the first half a dozen games of the season aren’t quite as intimidating as last season, but no team can really afford a slow start. Sunderland regularly seem to bring in unknown players but with selling Mingolet, unless there’s a mountain of debt somewhere, the club really should be re-investing that in a couple of quality, experienced players. I just don’t know if you’re going to attract them to Sunderland…
