Sunderland Association Football Club Current Players
Midfielder Liam became Sunderland's fifth signing of the January 2014 transfer window when he completed a move from Brighton on deadline day.
Bridcutt signed a three-and-a-half-year contract on Wearside, with Sunderland paying the Seagulls an undisclosed fee for his services.
A former Chelsea trainee, Liam cut his teeth with loan spells at Yeovil, Watford and Stockport, making a combined 37 appearances.
Gus Poyet brought the tough-tackling midfielder to Brighton on a permanent basis in August 2010 and the Reading-born star was soon established in the first team, winning promotion to the Championship at the end of his first season.
Liam bagged the Seagulls’ Player of the Season award in both 2012 and 2013, making 151 appearances for the club overall and scoring two goals.
