After failing to hold down a first team place he was transferred to Sunderland for £1.8 million. He only scored twice for Sunderland in 35 games. During his time with the Black Cats he went out on loan to Derby scoring 3 times in 17 outings. Neil Warnock signed Stead at Sheffield United for a fee believed to be £750,000.
