Lamine Kone has only been at Sunderland since January, but he is becoming something of a legend at the Stadium of Light for his on and off-the-field antics.
The French defender, who joined Sunderland in January from Lorient, became a hugely popular figure on Wearside in the second half of last season.
Kone endeared himself to Black Cats supporters even further in May by scoring twice in the 3-0 win over Everton to seal Sunderland's Premier League survival - and relegate bitter North-East rivals Newcastle United in the process.
One Newcastle fan may still be sour toward him after pulling the Paris-born centre-back up on a grammatical error on Twitter.
But Kone cemented himself as a fan favourite on Wearside by reminding the Magpie supporter of their club's upcoming Championship season.

Such is Kone's solid start to life in England, it has been reported by ESPN that Sunderland's hierarchy has offered him a new £70,000-a-week deal to stay on the North East, amid speculation linking him with Everton.
Liverpool fans can expect a boat-load of banter from the man himself this season should a move to Goodison Park materialise.
