Sunderland Stadium of Light

Sunderland supporters have been delighted by Duncan Watmore's commitment, after he penned a new deal until 2020.

Sunderland supporters have been left delighted after Duncan Watmore signed a new contract at the Stadium of Light today.

Watmore has committed his future to Sunderland until 2020, putting an end to speculation about his future.

The 22-year-old has been said to be attracting interest from other Premier League clubs by the Sunderland Echo, but it seems that he is now set to stay on Wearside for the long-term.

Sunderland will now be hoping that Watmore can fulfill his potential, as he is an undoubted talent.

The wide-man has started to earn a few starts so far this term, and there is a feeling that Sam Allardyce will continue to give him opportunities as the season progresses.

Sunderland supporters certainly are excited by Watmore’s progress, and his commitment to the future has provided them with some much needed reason to cheer, after their poor start to the campaign.

Here is the best reaction from Sunderland supporters to Watmore’s contract extension on social media site Twitter.
