Sunderland supporters do not appear to be enthused by the rumours that they could be about to sign Aston Villa defender Micah Richards.
According to the Birmingham Mail, Sunderland are prepared to pay £5 million for Richards, as they look to bolster their defence.
However, the majority of Black Cats fans are not convinced that Richards would be a good addition.
I wouldn't pay 5m skittles for Micah Richards— Steve Parkinson (@Steve86FTM) July 20, 2016
Swapping a crippled Wes Brown for last seasons inept Micah Richards sounds like no improvement to my uneducated brain— Mark (@harrmn) July 20, 2016
Would 100% take Micah Richards. He had a poor season in a poor Villa side. Obviously. But that was an anomaly... plus he plays both RB & CB.— Daniel Graham Parker (@dgp202) July 20, 2016
Imagine bringing in Micah Richards I might as well put me boots on and play right back— James Roper (@J95roper) July 20, 2016

Micah Richards? I am suddenly a lot happier about the lack of transfers, long may it continue.— Andy (@SAFCsource) July 19, 2016
Richards struggled to make a positive impression at Villa last season, with his performances being poor.
The powerful defender failed to save Villa from relegation, and he badly disappointed after joining from Manchester City.
Sunderland reportedly believe they could restore Richards back to his best.
However, it seems that if the reports are true, then the arrival of the England international would not go down well at the Stadium of Light.
Villa fans do appear to be happier with the reports though, and they are hoping that Richards leaves.
Micah Richards to Sunderland? Please! I like Sunderland - good fans. If this happens, I feel for them. But I'll also celebrate wildly. #AVFC— Chris (@chrisxblast) July 19, 2016
