Robbin Ruiter has impressed at Sunderland on trial and has been the talk of the club’s fans and local media. With Sunderland looking to bring in two goalkeepers during the summer transfer window, Ruiter has been allowed the chance to show what he can do.
Coming through the ranks at FC Volendam, Ruiter moved to FC Utrecht in 2012, and when his contract expired there at the end of June, the 30 year old became a free agent.
Without a high profile, that meant accepting trials and half offers of a chance, and led Ruiter to Sunderland. After a good performance against Bradford City, fans have been calling for the player’s signing.
Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf say on Monday that it seems a ‘matter of time’ before Sunderland and Ruiter come to an agreement over the goalkeeper staying.
He’s training with Sunderland today and tomorrow, and then a decision will have to be made, so the signing is possible by midweek.
De Telegraaf believe Ruiter has a good chance of a Sunderland contract, and he’s certainly done all he can to impress.
