Sunderland have been on the search for a striker since Charlie Wyke left the club earlier this summer and have now signed Everton’s Nathan Broadhead on a season-long loan.

The 23-year-old has made two appearances for the Merseyside club, making his Premier League debut in April.

The forward also made 22 appearances for Burton Albion in the 2019/20 season, scoring three goals primarily from the wing.

Broadhead also enjoyed a successful 2020/21 campaign for Everton’s U23 side, scoring 11 goals and assisting three.

With Ross Stewart bagging two in two in the league so far, it is likely that he will remain first choice with Broadhead a back-up to the Scotsman.
