Buckley Deal Done, Three Year Contract

Buckley Deal Done, Three Year Contract

Sunderland have completed the signing of Will Buckley from Brighton at a fee of £2.5 million.

The 24 year old comes to the Stadium of Light on a three year deal where he will play once again under his old boss Gus Poyet.

Buckley went to Brighton from Watford and became a legend at the Amex Stadium when he came off the bench to score two goals in stoppage time which sealed a 2-1 win against Doncaster the first night the Amex was open.

Buckley also scored a memorable FA Cup goal to knock out Newcastle United at the Amex, which makes him an instant hero on Wearside.

Brighton chairman Tony Bloom said: 'Will gave us some great moments during his time with the club and I would like to thank him for his efforts in his time with us and wish him well for the future.'

Good signing, like what he did to the barcodes, he's okay by me.
