Sunderland have been one of the standout performers in League One this season, with one of the strongest squads in the division at Jack Ross’ disposal.
The Black Cats can’t afford to slip-up in what is a very competitive division, as a number of sides are all fighting for two automatic promotion places.
Although, it appears as if one of the clubs rising stars is turning his attention towards a potential move away, as according to the Chronicle Live, Bali Mumba has revealed he will discuss leaving the club on loan in January.
Sunderland’s rising star Bali Mumba has revealed he will discuss leaving the club on loan in January.
Sadly, the 17-year-old has only managed to feature seven times this season, which has forced him into looking at a potential January loan exit.
“For my age it’s a good thing to be doing, getting experience playing against bigger physical lads.
“Loan talks, I haven’t heard much yet, me and the gaffer will try and discuss it, but right now I’m in a good space.
“I think what I’m doing is enough but I want to do more. We’ll soon have that conversation and see what we want to do about loans.”
Bali Mumba has a bright future ahead of him and will no doubt go on to become a future star of the game, but a loan move seems like the right decision at this stage in his football career.
The Englishman is desperate to challenge himself by playing regular football, so a January exit looks inevitable at this point with talks in the offing.
