Australia international Bailey Wright is pleased to have signed a permanent contact with Sunderland following an impressive loan spell earlier in the year. The 28-year-old joined the Black Cats on a short-term loan from Bristol City in January and he played five successive league games where they picked up 12 points with four clean sheets.
However, he thereafter sustained an injury and that contributed to the Black Cats dip in form as they accumulated only five points from the next five matches. That proved costly in the end as they failed to make the cut for the play-offs before the season was curtailed because of the corona virus pandemic and the club are now preparing for their third campaign in League One.
