“He’s playing with a young team.


“I like how they play. Full of energy.


“He can play both sides for us.


“How we play I think he suits us.


“He fits in with how we want to play really well.”


Previously of the Leeds United academy, the right-back has impressed at Sunderland and has made 15 appearances this season under Mowbray.
