Out-of-contract winger Benji Kimpioka has said that he would be keen to agree a new deal with League One side Sunderland.
With the 2019/20 season over and the Black Cats missing out on promotion to the Championship, manager Phil Parkinson is expected to have a busy summer ahead as he looks to bolster his side and bounce back next term.
Making four appearances in League One for Sunderland this term, contributing to 2% of the club’s goal involvements and, given that impression he left on the pitch, Parkinson would seemingly be keen for him to sign a new deal.
Speaking on his future over the weekend, the young attacking talent has hinted that he could pen new terms with the Black Cats.
“Right now I’m waiting a bit, talking to my agent and family to see how we should do in the window that is coming,” he is quoted as saying by Sunderland Echo.
“Sunderland is a club that I love and I like everyone there, all the coaches, players and staff in the club.
“We’ll see. I want to stay there, but everything is in God’s hands.”
Sunderland have struggled to keep hold of a number of young players in recent times, with the likes of Josh Maja and Duncan Watmore leaving the Stadium Light. Therefore, it would be a shot in the arm to hold of Kimpioka.
The 20-year-old seems to have a promising future, given his status as an underage international, and he appears to be an exciting young talent who could prove to be a promising attacking option for Parkinson’s promotion push next term.
