Sunderland have completed the signing of Danny Batth from Stoke City on a permanent basis.

With the Potters having brought in Taylor Harwood-Bellis and Phil Jagielka this month, the 31-year-old had fallen down the pecking order at the Bet365 Stadium and a move seemed likely after he failed to make the matchday squad against Hull last time out.

Reports initially linked the former Wolves man with a switch to Sheffield Wednesday but in a twist today it was stated that the Black Cats were now frontrunners for Batth’s signature.

And, his arrival on Wearside was announced this evening, with Batth sealing a permanent switch to the Stadium of Light on an 18-month contract.

Given his pedigree, it’s fair to say the majority of fans are delighted with this bit of business which will give Lee Johnson a proven option at centre-back for the run-in.

Here we look at some of the reaction to the news from Twitter…
