Sunderland Echo, saying talks at an advanced stage:-

"Sunderland are closing-in on new faces, however, with a move for Bristol City defender Bailey Wright at an advanced stage.

The Australian international is understood to be completing a medical on Wearside ahead of a move to the Stadium of Light, with a deal having been agreed with parent club Bristol City."

Yes that report 😁

Why have we sold Bailey Wright 

Obviously to reduce the bloated squad, which I keep reading on here that we have.

Didn't think he was that fat to be fair... 

Also we probably think it better to sell him before he gets another EFL ban!

Nothing on the OS..............:cool2:

Apparently, due to injuries, the sale has been delayed until next week, or until Kalas and Baker are considered fit enough so he can be let go.

Hes not quite good enough to hold down a first team spot either at RB or CB.

Makes sense if Johnson has belief in Taylor Moore

Now that's a good point. I do rate Moore

I liked Bailey - forced to play at right back for a long spell, did very well there, but playing out of position probably cost him his place in the Aussie World Cup squad (despite playing in 12 of their qualifying games) - never publicly moaned once, solid, proper pro - I wish him all the best ... glad he’s joined a bigger club

Confirmed to Sunderland on loan!!!

 

why a loan?

I thought that, but reading MA’s comment it seems to indicate he’s not coming back.

“On behalf of everyone at Bristol City I want to thank Bailey for all he has done for this club,” said Ashton. “From the moment he arrived he has been the model professional and ambassador and we all wish him well.”

I suppose Sunderland have paid a loan fee for BW but otherwise it is a bit strange. 
 

How much is a Championship defender and an Australian international with six months on his contract worth ? 
 

Equally, Matty Taylor will walk for nothing if we don’t sell him this window.

Now I know we didn’t pay much for the pair but surely even a million for the two would help the FFP situation ? 
 

Perhaps we’ve got that in loan fees and are happy to let the lads pursue their careers elsewhere ?

Loan fee I expect. It doesn't make much difference to us as he's out of contract at end of his time there anyway.

Probably just Sunderland making sure he's good and fit before having him permanently in the summer.

Other than a fit Kalas I don't think Wright is any better or worse than any of our other back line. All seems very strange. He was captain for a while. Maybe he questioned tactics or lack of them.

100% agree.

Got our moneys worth out of him and then some.

Gone then is one of those few City players who, like Taylor Moore are almost always referred to by their full name - almost as though it's a double-barrelled surname.

Good luck Bailey. Good luck Wright. Good luck Bailey Wright - and thanks for your service.

I'd like to see More of Moore...

But its seems Johnson will only play him in a back three

Apart from all the times he's played him in a back four...

But let's not let the truth get in the way.

It’s a loan so we don’t have to pay up the Rest  of his contract,

it also put the player in the shop window so other clubs may offer him a contract, as well as let Sunderland have a good look at him

From the City FB page. Well done Bailey

So it's official, although we knew for sure on Saturday when good byes were said!
As a family we are sad to see Bailey go, especially our daughter Charlotte.

From their first meeting, when he took the time to pop down and talk to her whilst she was doing her 13,000 Seat Challenge in the Summer of 2018 he has been such an amazing support.
Not only with her on going fund raising for the Cots for Tots Appeal but by also helping and encouraging her through two big knee operations, simply talking her through her rehab etc and trying to stop her worrying. That we can never thank him enough for x

We wish him all the luck in the world & no doubt like he actually said on Saturday he'll see her again soon!
Seeing I've just noticed flights to Newcastle have been looked up, she's already planning!

Was anyone else surprised he was just 27?

Yes I thought it was a typo. Thought he was 30 for some reason. Still yet to hit his prime could argue.

Good luck to BW from me. Playing at right back, out of position when we needed it and I’ll thank him for that.

I hope he gets a good move in the summer  and I’ll give him a clap if he appears at the Gate in the future. Great pro!

Bailey Wright deserves some thanks from our supporters. He came here at a difficult time for us, and while he will never grace the City Hall of Fame, he has given his all every time that he went on the pitch for City in whichever position he was selected. He's a leader and a guy who is probably well respected by his fellow pros.

Best wishes for another career at Sunderland.

Might also see whether any Champ clubs want him in the summer, plus chance to get a decent signing on fee.

Re Matty, same could apply, but suspect playing for hometown club has its merits..

Played him out of position at RB in a 1-4-4-2 yes, but doesn't trust him to play CB in this formation which is a shame because he has wrongly been left out imho.

Good luck Bailey, good honest pro that will be a great signing for Sunderland if he can stay fit (which will probably be easier if he's playing more).

He's unfortunate in the fact that he picked up the injuries he had when he did, as by the time he was able to come back we had moved on as a team, and he maybe wasn't as good as the other options we had in his position.

I can see him doing well for them.

Taylor Moore?

I think you're mistaken bud, he's not played right back this season to my knowledge, and he has definitely played centre back in a back four several times.

I really don't understand this one. A very good defender, played out of position, club captain, a very good ambassador and link between the players and coaches.

Considering the frequency of injuries to Kalas and Baker I am surprised he hasn't played more.

But he is not very good. Perhaps he will find his feet with Sunderland. I wish him well.

TM Has played RB for parts of a couple of games, e.g. Cardiff away.  Hasn’t started there though.

The main reason he is going, is that he lost his place in the Australian side.

He used to be captain, but missed going to the World Cup and was devastated.

He wants to get guaranteed game time, which he will, and therefore get back in the Australian national side

And that means he will play in the Asian Cup, which is highly regarded over in this side of the planet, and hopefully the World Cup, should Australia qualify in 2022.

Australia sit clearly top of qualifying group B at present.

 

He gave up so many personal honours to play for us whilst injured, including going to Russia.

It seems a lot forget that, so before the personal attacks, give your head a wobble.

The guy played injured, lost form, got dropped, and lost the chance to Captain his country at a World Cup.  For that alone, he deserves some bloody respect.

 

All the best BW, and good luck to you.

I do agree with everything you said, but what the heck were we playing at letting an injured player go out on the pitch?

We hastily loaned out Vyner too early in the window!!

Agreed.

Seems a bit hypocritical to do that and then moan that the Hungarian manager did the same with Nagy.

In hindsight, it was a poor decision to allow him to play through injury even if the player wanted to play.

Great respect for Wright and I hope he smashes it at Sunderland.
