20-year-old Chelsea defender Jake Clarker-Salter has joined Championship side Sunderland on loan until the end of the season.
Clarker-Salter was a key part of England’s U20 World Cup winning side back in the summer and becomes Chris Coleman’s first signing as manager of Sunderland.
Coleman expressed his delight at the signing of Clarke-Salter by saying: “Jake is a hugely talented young player who has jumped at the opportunity to come to this club and show people what he can do.
“You don’t play for a club like Chelsea unless you have tremendous ability and I’m sure he will be able to demonstrate that for Sunderland.
“Jake is exactly the type of hungry young player I have spoken about and he has shown me just how keen he is to come to here and play in front of our supporters.”
