Yorke signs new deal

Yorke signs new deal

Sunderland midfielder Dwight Yorke has extended his stay at the Stadium of light after signing a one year extension. The deal means Yorke could be playing Premier League football aged 37.

Yorke told the Sunderland Echo "I keep saying 'one more year ... one more year'. Now that I've signed here at Sunderland I've just got to see what this year brings and see what I contribute to the team and weigh it up at the end."

"It's a challenge for me as a player to get in the team because there will be a lot of competition for places. It's what you want and hopefully that will bring out the best in me."

"It must be my 20th pre-season; the first one seems like yesterday. I've had a great time in my career and I still continue to do so. I'm really looking forward to the season, trying to contribute in whatever way I can."

"I had options. I wanted to go away and enjoy my time off, spend time with family and friends. I knew I needed to make a decision and this was the right time."

"It's rewarding to think that I will get the chance to play in the Premier League at the age of 37."



Vital Sunderland Says

It`s pleasing to see Yorke extend his stay at the club he has the quality to do a job even at his age.

I think you would have been better off finding a younger box to box midfielder.
