Sunderland midfielder Elliot Emberton has signed a new deal at the club until 2025. The player has decided to continue his association with Sunderland having been at the club since the age of eight.
Emberton scored his first goal for the Black Cats in the win over MK Dons in a League One meeting played in August. He was one of the goalscorers as Sunderland claimed a 2-1 win at the home of MK Dons. Scottish striker Ross Stewart scored the opener with three minutes left in the first half to establish a slender lead for his team. Emberton added a second Sunderland goal seven minutes after restart but it didn’t take long before MK Dons pulled one back through Irish striker Troy Parott. The Black Cats thereafter held on to take the three points.
The news of the fresh deal for Sunderland attacking midfielder Elliot Emberton is music to the ears of the supporters. They are excited that the 22-year-old attacker has made the decision to commit his long-term future to the Black Cats.
In other news from League One, Ronnie Schwartz will leave Charlton Athletic after both parties agreed to the termination of his contract. The striker’s contract with the London club has been cancelled and he’s expected to leave the club with immediate effect. Schwartz became a Charlton Athletic player during the winter transfer window earlier this year after the League One club paid an undisclosed fee to sign him from FC Midtjylland in the Danish league.
Schwartz, 32, has not been able to make a big impact since he signed for the Addicks. He has played 16 times for the club since signing but his last appearance came against AFC Wimbledon in March. The experienced striker has not made a single appearance for the Nigel Adkins-led side since the new season started two months ago.
