The deal for the versatile defender is thought to be a permanent one, with the 20-year-old coming in to bolster the Black Cats’ defensive ranks.

Huggins is another player with little senior experience, however he made his Premier League debut in February and had a superb campaign as part of the Whites’ side who won promotion from Premier League 2 Division 2.

Marcelo Bielsa made the full-back available for a move away this summer - much to many fans’ disappointment - and Sunderland look set to beat Championship sides Blackpool and Blackburn Rovers to his signature.
