Man Utd forward Amad joins Sunderland on loan

·1-min read

Manchester United forward Amad Diallo has joined Championship side Sunderland on loan for the rest of the 2022-23 season.

The Ivory Coast international joined the Red Devils in January 2021 from Atalanta, but he struggled to find a way into the first team at Old Trafford.

He was loaned out to Scottish Premiership giants Rangers for the second half of last season, scoring three times in 13 appearances across all competitions.

The 20-year-old will work under new Black Cats boss Tony Mowbray, who was appointed on Tuesday after Alex Neil left to join Championship rivals Stoke City.

"I feel good and very positive about this opportunity, so I'm happy to be here," Amad told Sunderland's official website.

"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."
