Marc McNulty seals loan switch to Sunderland

Striker signs season-long stay with the Black Cats

24 July 2019

Reading Football Club can announce that striker Marc McNulty has completed a loan move to League One Sunderland.

The Edinburgh-born forward signed for the Royals from Coventry City last summer and scored once in 6(+9) appearances before making a loan move to Hibernian in January.

McNulty last featured for our first team in a 2-0 defeat against his former club, Sheffield United, at the start of December. Upon returning to his native Scotland, for the first time since leaving Livingston back in 2014, the 26-year-old netted eight goals in 17 appearances during his stay at Easter Road.

Now he becomes a Black Cat for 2019-20. Sunderland finished fifth in League One last season but were denied a move back to the second tier at the final hurdle, suffering play-off heartbreak in defeat to Charlton Athletic at Wembley in May.

We would like to wish Marc the best of luck during his loan spell at the Stadium of Light.
