Bailey Wright delighted to sign for Sunderland on a permanent basis

Posted on September 23, 2020 in Millwall


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.

Despite Wright’s injury, he had a huge impact on the team’s performance during his loan stint and the Black Cats have now landed his signature on a two-year permanent deal. Speaking to the club’s official website, the experienced ace was delighted to join the Wear side outfit permanently and is looking forward to guiding them to Championship promotion next term.

It feels really good to get the deal done and I just can’t wait to get up to the North East and join the squad. Although I only worked with the manager for a short spell, I really enjoyed the structure and discipline of the team. He expects his players to give everything on the pitch and be good people, and we have that culture within the dressing room. We are heading in the right direction and I’m very confident we can achieve our ambitions next season,” He told.

Sunderland finished the previous season in the seventh spot, but dropped one place behind after the points-per-game system was used. They had played a game more than most of the teams and two more than Wycombe Wanderers, who were initially eighth on the table. Wycombe jumped to third from eighth on the table due to PPG and eventually went on to secure promotion to the second tier for the first time in their history.
