Sunderland supporters do not appear to be hoping Charles N’Zogbia signs a contract at the Stadium of Light.
N’Zogbia is currently a free agent, following the expiration of his contract at Aston Villa.
The French midfielder fell completely out of favour at Villa, and by the time he left he had lost any support he had from supporters of the Midlands club.
N’Zogbia has now been pictured in training at Sunderland, with Sam Allardyce seemingly taking a look at the attacking midfielder’s talents.
Sunderland want to add creativity to their squad this summer, and N’Zogbia seems to have been identified as a potential addition.
However, Black Cats fans appear to be hoping that the former Wigan Athletic man does not sign a contract on Wearside.
Charles N'Zogbia training with #SAFC. Never been able to take him seriously since Joe Kinnear called him 'Insomnia'— Chris Weatherspoon (@christoph_21) July 4, 2016
Just when you get rid of Virgini, Charles N’Zogbia turns up #SAFC— Graeme Atkinson (@SAFCElvis) July 4, 2016

I hope to god Allardyce and Sunderland aren't stupid enough to sign N'Zogbia. The bloke is poison. #safc— TB (C) (@tom9022) July 4, 2016

N'Zogbia training with Sunderland. Could be a great signing, or a horrible one— Jack Charters (@chartersjSAFC) July 4, 2016
Obviously, not buzzing about the nzogbia link. But if @OfficialBigSam can get his attitude in check then he could be a good squad option— Richard McCreaddie (@rickymac73) July 4, 2016
N’Zogbia’s attitude was frequently called into question at Villa, and his performances last term were poor.
If he did move to Sunderland, he would be in competitions with the likes of Fabio Borini and Wahbi Khazri for a first-team place.
