Sunderland 'agree deal' with ex-West Brom defender Tyrese Dyce after encouraging trial spell - reports

Sunderland have agreed a deal to sign defender Tyrese Dyce – according to reports.

The young left-back spent time on trial at the Academy of Light towards the end of the 2020/21 season and played in two fixtures for the Black Cats’ under-23 side.

He impressed in the Premier League 2 play-off semi-final victory at Stoke City, but was withdrawn through injury late on and missed the final at Crystal Palace.

But reports suggest he made a sufficient enough impression to earn himself a deal on Wearside, with Football Insider claiming that the 20-year-old has agreed terms on a contract with Sunderland after being released by West Brom.

It is likely that Dyce will feature for the club’s second string should a deal indeed come to fruition, with Manchester United goalkeeper Jacob Carney also expected to sign.

Lee Johnson is still seeking reinforcements in the senior squad, particularly at left-back – where Denver Hume is still weighing-up a contract offer from the club.
