Sunderland fans have largely been pleased by the club's signing of Jermain Defoe, which went through today.
The experienced forward was brought in from FC Toronto to increase their attacking threat for the second half of the season and most Black Cats supporters seem to believe he will have the desired effect.
Sunderland have scored just 18 goals in 21 Premier League matches to date, but the addition of a clinical finisher is what Gus Poyet hopes will push the side on.
Defoe has previously played for the likes of West Ham United, Tottenham Hotspur and Portsmouth and he has always had a happy knack of hitting the back of the net.
At 32 years old, Defoe is now heading into the twilight of his career, but most fans of the North East outfit feel he is an impressive addition, even if it is only a short-term fix.
Sunderland are only one point above the drop zone and they need their new front man to hit the ground running if they are to start climbing the table.
Defoe is set to go straight into the Black Cats' squad for their game against Tottenham at White Hart Lane tomorrow.
Here is the best reaction from Sunderland fans to Defoe's arrival on social media site Twitter.
Can't believe we've swapped Altidore for Defoe. Sunderland don't do good transfer business, this is strange #SAFC— Andrew McManus (@Andy_Mc_4) January 16, 2015
The most important part of the Defoe deal is that we have effectively got our money back for Altidore, that's amazing business #safc— Paul Thompson (@dapper74) January 16, 2015
This is why i love supporting a mid table PL team.. Defoe signing exciting and massive for us.. If i glory supported it would be meh.. #safc— Joe Smith (@Joecsmith11) January 16, 2015
Think Defoe cld be effective short-term signing for #safc (if they can up their creativity) but can't see logic of tying him to 3.5-yr deal.— James Gheerbrant (@JamesGheerbrant) January 16, 2015
Brilliant signing, over the moon with the Defoe deal. Incredible that it's a straight swap for Altidore. Well played Sunderland!— Steven Fairless (@StevieJ73) January 16, 2015
