Is this the way to Javi Manquillo
Every night I've been thinking of Djilo
Crying over Yann M'Vila
But Donald Loves been there for me

Now we need to extend the customary Salut! Sunderland welcome to Javier Manqillo – and the hope that Google Translate was up to the task …
David Moyes’ assistant and Moyes on the Boyes supersub Paul Bracewell revealed last night, Wednesday, that the Atletico Madrid full-back Javier Manquillo was having a medical prior to completing a move to Sunderland. He clearly passed with flying colours and is now one of ours on a season0-long loan with a buying option.
This, with just a little editing, is how safc.com put it:
‘The 22-year-old Spaniard becomes David Moyes’ sixth signing after joining from the Spanish giants. Manquillo is no stranger to the Premier League having spent the 2014-15 season on loan with Liverpool.
The right-footed player has represented his country at youth level up to under-21 and has both UEFA Champions League and Europa League experience with Atletico. He spent last season on loan with Marseille, gaining further European experience.
The agreement is a season-long loan initially, which includes an option for Sunderland to make the move a permanent four-year deal after the completion of the loan.’
Welcome, young man. Your arrival has made most of us forget that we quite wanted DeAndre Yedlin to return.
