outgoing: Hume completes Portsmouth move

Sunderland AFC today confirmed that Denver Hume has joined Portsmouth on a permanent transfer.

The Academy of Light graduate joined the club aged 10 and departs after 13 years of service on Wearside, moving to Fratton Park for an undisclosed fee.

Hume made his senior debut on the final day of the 2017-18 season in a 3-0 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers before cementing his place as a first-team regular during the 2019-20 campaign.

One of our own, the left-back went on to make 82 appearances for the Lads in all competitions, scoring three goals and contributing 10 assists.

Kristjaan Speakman said: “Naturally, Denver wants to be playing regular football to move his career forward, but he’s found himself out of the team and played less than 20 games in the past 12 months. As an academy graduate, we want to support and maximise his development and this is a natural progression for him in the current circumstances. We look forward to watching Denver’s future development from afar and we wish him the best of luck at Fratton Park.

All at SAFC echo Kristjaan’s well wishes and thank Denver for his contribution over the last 13 years.
