Jozy Altidore’s Official Website Announces His Transfer to Sunderland Before Page Is Removed

jozy altidore Jozy Altidores Official Website Announces His Transfer to Sunderland Before Page Is Removed

An article was published on Jozy Altidore’s official website Friday announcing that the AZ Almaar and US international striker had successfully completed a transfer to Sunderland in the Premier League.

However, soon after the article was published, it was removed from the site. No official announcement of Altidore’s signing has been mentioned on the official Sunderland club website yet, so presumably one of Altidore’s representatives jumped the gun and posted the article prematurely. We’ll find out by early next week whether the deal is completely finalized or not.

But before the page was removed from the website, 101 Great Goals was able to take a screenshot and copied the text that was published on Altidore’s official site:

“Alkmaar Zaanstreek agreed to sell the rights to striker Jozy Altidore to Sunderland Association Football Club of the English Premier League. Financial terms of the transfer fee agreed upon between AZ and Sunderland were not disclosed.

“Altidore’s transfer is contingent upon him passing a physical, which is scheduled for Monday, with the Sunderland medical staff.”

Unless any last minute offers come in for Altidore, it looks very likely that the former Hull City striker will join Sunderland on Monday or Tuesday. What’s your opinion about the move if it goes through? Will a move to Sunderland be a good move for Altidore in this stage of his career? Share your opinion in the comments section below.
