Michael Gray says Sunderland should never have sold Stephane Sessegnon to West Bromwich Albion

Sunderland Gates

Sunderland sold Stephane Sessegnon to West Bromwich Albion back in 2013.

Michael Gray says that Sunderland should never have sold Stephane Sessegnon.

The Benin international was relinquished by the Black Cats back in 2013 after West Bromwich Albion submitted a bid.

Gray feels that Sunderland are now missing the attacking midfielder more than any other player they have let go.

Sessegnon made 93 appearances for Sunderland during his three year stay at the club after arriving from PSG in 2010.

The former Le Mans man scored 18 times for the Black Cats, but he only showed his ability in flashes.

Sessegnon failed to ever find the consistency required to totally fulfil his potential at the Stadium of Light.

Since moving to West Brom, Sessegnon has had a mixed time.

It seemed that he had fallen out of favour at the beginning of this season, but he is now playing a crucial role for Tony Pulis’ men and looks to be a key part of their starting line up.
