Official: Sunderland Sign A Full Back!

Dennis Grombkowski

The tally of summer reinforcements at the Stadium of Light has reached double figures, with a right back the latest new addition.

Sunderland have got a full back. Let's take a moment to allow that sentence to fully sink in before we go any further. Unless you count daft and generally irrelevant things like Phil Bardsley, that isn't a sentence we have been able to say for a few months.

24-year-old Czech Ondrej Celustka completed his loan move to Wearside today from Turkish outfit Trabzonspor, becoming the 10th new arrival of a busy summer.

Although it is a loan deal and they tend to cause plenty of sighs, it is more of a 'try before you buy' kind of a loan rather than the 'please allow us to develop a player for your benefit' Danny Rose kind of loan.

Is he any good? We don't know. This time last week we hadn't heard of him and there is no point in trying to claim otherwise.

But we know he is a right back, and with the new season a matter of days away and Craig Gardner suspended for the opener, it's nice to have a specialist alternative at the very least. Let's hope he can hit the ground running.
