Nazariy Rusyn joined the team after moving to Sunderland on the final day of the transfer window. Nazariy Rusyn, a striker from Ukraine, has now arrived in the North East in a formal capacity.
Rusyn was signed by Sunderland on the final day of the transfer window, however the striker’s arrival to the Academy of Light was delayed due to injury uncertainties.
The 24-year-old attacker signed a four-year contract with Sunderland for an unknown sum, with a club option for an additional year.
After an agent executed his Sunderland contract on his behalf, Rusyn was required to pass his physical in Paris as he was still awaiting a visa and authorization to enter England.
When Mason Burstow, Adil Aouchiche, and Timothee Pembele, the other Black Cats’ deadline-day additions, were introduced to the crowd at the Stadium of Light as Sunderland defeated Southampton 5-0, Rusyn was not present.
However, Rusyn’s arrival in Sunderland has been formally announced by the team after being sighted in the region last weekend by keen-eyed supporters on social media.
Rusyn missed three games for Zorya Luhansk due to an injury, which he has been recovering from since the announcement of his transfer to Sunderland.
