Ex-Canary Lewis Grabban has joined Sunderland on a season-long loan from parent club Bournemouth.



Grabban was sold back to the Cherries for a tidy profit but has failed to recapture his form which had seen him net 35 goals in 87 appearances in his first stint with the south-coast side.

His form at Norwich had not been as prolific, so it was a welcome surprise when we sold him for a reported £8m.

He has featured only 18 times for Bournemouth, scoring a whopping 0 goals. He was loaned to Reading last season and scored 3 in 16 appearances.

With Sunderland he may find his opportunities even further limited but I think we’d all like to see him play against us in a few weeks (as long as Sunderland lose and he doesn’t score!)

No one has forgiven him for the way he walked out of the game against Rotherham two years ago after being named on the bench. There may have well been some extraneous circumstances but even Grabban’s eluding tweet suggesting things were not all they seemed hasn’t enamored him back with the Canary faithful.
