Sunderland have completed the signing of Mitchell Curry after he saw his contract come to an end with Middlesbrough.
A dismal, winless 2019/20 campaign for the Black Cats’ academy sides has led to Elliot Dickman’s squad being rebooted with a number of new faces, signing Sam Wilding and Bobby Beaumont to kick-start what has turned into a summer rebuild.
Dickman and Sunderland have not stopped there, bringing in Oliver Younger, who has signed on the dotted line just months after having his contract ended with Burnley.
Younger’s announcement via Sunderland’s official website was then followed by the arrival of Curry, who left Middlesbrough earlier this summer.
The 21-year-old striker appeared 20 times in Premier League 2 for Boro and has also enjoyed loan spells with Harrogate Town, Inverness Caledonian Thistle and Gateshead FC.
This look like another good piece of business from Sunderland, who have made significant changes to their youth setup.
Dickman can be pleased with the new additions that he has managed to bring in but he will also need to be afforded time and patience to ensure that they can work together and improve the fortunes of the under-23 side.
Do you think Sunderland’s under-23 team can grab some wins this season? Let us know your views in the comments section below…
