The winger had been exiled by shell shocked supremo Phil Parkinson, and was training with the Black Cats’ under-23 side having been told he was free to find a new club during the winter window.

Perhaps I should have accepted Sky's invitation to go on at 06.45, although I always think Skype interviews are low on picture and sound quality, plus the risk of the cat appearing.

Speaking for moaners, Desmond for Deal said: 'This is not the big marquee signing I was hoping for, instead a cast off from League One.'

More positively, the Chicago Addick has commented from Bermuda:' McGeady represents a low risk, if not cheap, loan option. He brings a load of experience and is a midfielder in the Bowyer mould.'

Richard Cawley tweeted early on Friday: 'Charlton hoping to do two more deals today. Hoping. I'm not saying definitely happening.'
