Tottenham prospect joins Sunderland on loan

Kazaiah Sterling has joined Sunderland from Tottenham on loan for the rest of the season.

The 20-year-old forward gets a chance to play first-team football – and help Sunderland in their quest for promotion from League One

Sterling has been prolific for Spurs’ development side and Sunderland boss Jack Ross told the Wearside club’s website he believes the player can make an impact in the north-east.

Ross said: “Kazaiah has risen to the various challenges he’s faced throughout his development in youth football, and he arrives at Sunderland ready to prove himself again.

“Tottenham have a world-class squad and despite his age, he has forced his way into it on more than one occasion, but now he has the opportunity to come here and test himself by playing senior football on a regular basis.

“He’s athletic, good on the ball and has an eye for goal, so he has all the attributes at his disposal to ensure he’s a success during his time at the Stadium of Light.”
