Sunderland Sign Josh Scowen From Queens Park Rangers
Sunderland announced via their website they had signed the midfielder. Scowen arrives for an undisclosed fee and becomes Phil Parkinson’s third signing.
Scowen is a vastly experienced midfielder at League One level. He was part of the Barnsley side which won promotion to the Championship in 2016. He arrives ready to add another promotion to his CV.
The midfielder began his career at Wycombe Wanderers making over 100 appearances before moving to Barnsley.
He joined QPR in 2017 and has gone on to make 103 appearances for the R’s including 18 this season. Sunderland will feel it’s a real coup they have the midfielder on board.
Scowen could make his Sunderland debut against Tranmere Rovers on Wednesday evening.
What Was Said
Speaking to the Sunderland website about his move, Scowen said: “I’m over the moon to be here and I can’t wait to get started.
“I just want to show the gaffer what I can do and get in the team so that I can help the club keep winning games. I feel fit and I’m raring to go.”
Manager Phil Parkinson added: “I’m delighted to welcome Josh to the club. We identified him early in the window and it took a while to get the deal over the line, as we were competing with several other clubs for his signature.
“We have been patient, and the chairman and the board have worked hard to finalise a deal this afternoon.
“Josh has a promotion from League One on his cv and a lot of Championship experience. He can play in a number of different roles and he will bring real quality to the squad, especially in that midfield area.”
