Sunderland have confirmed the loan signing of Amad Diallo.
The Manchester United winger will join the Championship side on loan and play under new manager Tony Mowbray.
Amad, 20, joined United from Atalanta in January 2021 but has made just nine appearances for the first team. He also spent the second half of last season on loan at Rangers and failed to impress.
The Ivory Coast international told Sunderland’s official website: “I feel good and very positive about this opportunity, so I’m happy to be here. It was a great experience to play with Manchester United, but I’m here for a new challenge and I want to try my best to bring a lot of success to the Club.
“I feel good physically and I think this is the best team for me to progress and although I’ve never been to the Stadium of Light before, I know the supporters are great so I hope we can win many games together.”
We hope that this move will guarantee Amad regular football throughout the season – starting on Monday night when Sunderland take on Middlesbrough in the Tee-Wear Derby.
After the signing of Antony, Amad has a lot more to do to impress Ten Hag in the coming years. United have got themselves a talented Brazil international with lots of potential. That means the Ivorian will have to do something special to catch the manager’s attention.
Amad needs to provide more in the Championship than Scotland.
