After 91 league appearances and 52 goals, he left on 31 January 1949, but still registered as a player, he sold himself to Sunderland AFC for £18,000 claiming that it was in the best interests of the club that he leave, providing Carlisle with suitable financial reimbursement for the transfer, and a record fee for a Third Division North club(Sunderland had attempted to buy him on 17 January 1948 for £10,000). Following 71 league appearances, in which he scored 25 times, Manchester City FC paid £20,000 to take Broadis on 5 October 1951, beating offers from Leeds United AFC and Liverpool FC. He made 74 league appearances and scored ten goals for City.
