Sunderland winger Patrick Roberts has signed a new contract at the club.


The Black Cats were defeated by Luton Town in the play-off semifinals the previous season, which prevented them from winning promotion. However, they appear certain to be in the top six contenders for the upcoming season.


After defeating Birmingham City 3-1 on Saturday, Sunderland’s winning streak now stands at three games. They are currently sixth in the standings going into the international break.

On Monday night, Black Cats supporters received even more good news when the team revealed that winger Patrick Roberts had signed a new contract that will keep him at the Stadium of Light through the summer of 2026.


Roberts, who has been a Sunderland player since January 2022, expressed his happiness after pledging his future to the organisation.


I’ve enjoyed every moment of being here and I’m delighted to get the deal done. The supporters have been great with me and it’s been an enjoyable journey so far, and long may that continue. Sunderland is a huge club with huge expectations – I can’t wait for the next few years together and hopefully we’ll have more success along the way,” Roberts told the club’s official website.


Sporting Director Kristjaan Speakman is pleased to have tied Roberts down to a new deal, and he believes there is plenty more to come from the 26-year-old.

“Patrick has been at the heart of our progress throughout the last two seasons, and he has grown into an important member of our group. He possesses some elite qualities and at the age of 26, we firmly believe he can continue to develop, improve and evolve. We are really happy that he has signed a new deal and his commitment to the Club not only signifies his belief in our progression, but also our constant pursuit to improve,” Speakman told the club’s official website.


New Patrick Roberts deal is a huge boost for Sunderland

It is a huge coup for Sunderland to convince Roberts to sign a new contract at the club.


Roberts played an integral part in the Black Cats’ promotion from League One in 2022, and he seamlessly made the step up to the Championship last season, scoring five goals and providing seven assists in 48 appearances in all competitions.


Roberts, an integral part of Tony Mowbray’s Sunderland team, has shown impressive performances despite his lack of goal contributions.


Despite Southampton’s rejected £5 million bid, Sunderland is monitoring Roberts’ future, ensuring his future, as Sunderland fans may be concerned after Ross Stewart’s move to St Mary’s.

Roberts has reignited his career on Wearside after a number of disappointing loan spells during his time at Manchester City, and there is no doubt that, on his day, he is one of the most dangerous players in the Championship.


With Roberts on the right and Jack Clarke, who has scored nine goals so far this season, on the left, the Black Cats will certainly cause problems for opposition defences.


If the club can keep hold of Clarke and bring in a prolific striker in January, they will be in a strong position to achieve another top six finish.
