Sunderland fans are delighted after Ellis Taylor signed a three-year professional contract with the Black Cats ahead of next season.
The Stadium of Light outfit will be gutted with how last season eventually panned out. Going in to the final few games, it appeared they were well on their way to earning promotion to the Championship from League One automatically, but a poor run of form condemned them to the play-offs where they lost to Lincoln City in the semi-finals.
As such, Lee Johnson and his team will be trying to put themselves in the best possible position to go up next term. During their preparations, they have been able to secure the services of Taylor for three years (safc.com).
The 18-year-old has yet to make his debut for Sunderland’s senior side (Transfermarkt), but looks as though he could have a big future ahead of him considering the excitement around this deal.
