i feel like the much more defensive nature of the game in Italy would either frustrate him into another Hull debacle, or would provide the challenge for him to really excel.

Seems like no matter which way Jozy turns, there are double edged swords waiting to greet him.

Do you think American's abroad are undervalued?
Jozy had a great season and is only expecting 10mil euros best case. Dempsey didn't get the transfer fee he is worth.

I don't think so. Joey failed once in the EPL already. Dempsey was already 30. The huge transfers are for u20 guys or proven studs in their prime.

I think 10 mil euros is good value for jozy. Other than luis suarez thats about the price top strikers in the dutch league go for.

in dempsey's case he didn't go for his full transfer value most likely because of his age

Deuce didn't go for more than what he did because 1. he was pushing to get out so they would never get full value 2. his age. Jozy has multiple failed clubs, this is the first club outside of the MLS that he has succeeded, and it's only been two years in a league where goals are conceded in a high amount. I'd say 10 mil is a good number, if he goes to the EPL and scores 20+ there every year then in 4 years time he would at least bring double that to a club.

Second article by Greg Seltzer, apparently the first bid was rejected and they've already submitted a second. PDC is apparently quite keen on landing Jozy, and all the other competition for his signature has fallen off for the time being, so the planets seem to be aligning if they can agree on a fee.

Looks like it's set to happen for sure, unless things fall apart at the last minute or someone swoops in with a better offer.

surprised this deal is moving through so quickly

said it earlier, but... sunderland actually has some decent talent all over the pitch. prior to last season had finished 13th, 10th, 13th. last season i think they were quite a bit better than their table position (17th) - only 5 points back of 11th place norwich - and i would argue possibly a better team.

with jozy they are a legit top half contender

im just curious to see how the management aspect shapes up - the combo of the owner and di canio could be make for chaotic environment

Well thats cool. As long as he gets proper service and guys running around him he should be able to put some goals in the back of the net. Adam Johnson and Sessignon will be key components in combining with Altidore on and off of the ball.

Sunderland could turn out to be a fun attacking team to watch next season.

I also wonder if Fletcher and Altidore are both used in a two striker formation.

Jozy will have some competition for playing time though. Connor Wickham is England Youth player and Danny Graham has quite a bit of PL experience. That being said, it may be good for him to have to work for his spot.

Don't love this move on paper, but lets wait and see how this new look Sunderland team plays before we kill it.

It's still a jump up in league play, will get a huge test week in week out and if he does well he should get a bunch of playing time and be ready to be the focal point for the US attack in 2014.

Not really a downgrade. Going from a midtable AZ team in the dutch league to a historically midtable team in the EPL. Looks like an upgrade to me.

Don't forget Seb Larsson, a very good Winger/CAM Swedish International.
