Jordan Cook and Louis Laing join loan exodus from Sunderland

Have your say

TWO MORE of Sunderland’s youngsters have headed out on loan after Jordan Cook and Louis Laing agreed one-month stints in League One.

Black Cats boss Martin O’Neill has been eager to blood the club’s academy products into first-team football, with seven players now plying their football away from the Stadium of Light.

Cook completed a switch to play-off chasing Carlisle yesterday, while Laing moved to third bottom Wycombe, to follow John Egan, Trevor Carson, Blair Adams, Billy Knott and Ben Wilson out on loan.

Easington Lane-born forward Cook, who has enjoyed previous loan spells with Walsall and Darlington, joins ex-Sunderland team-mate Liam Noble at Brunton Park after the midfielder made a permanent move to Cumbria last week.

“As soon as I had the nod from Martin O’Neill, I couldn’t wait to get signed,” said the 21-year-old.
