Jerome Sinclair has completed his expected loan switch to Sunderland from Watford.

The deal sees the forward, who has made nine appearances for the Hornets since joining from Liverpool in 2016, spend the 2018/19 campaign with the League One club.

Sunderland boss Jack Ross believes Sinclair has all the qualities to thrive at the Stadium of Light and highlighted the 21-year-old’s versatility as a key reason for bringing him in.

He told the Sunderland website: “We need more players in the forward areas and Jerome is somebody who fits into that bracket, as he can play in multiple positions across the front line.

“I’m pleased to get him in and he’s at a stage in his career where he needs to play games, so he’s hungry to prove himself and he’s got a big opportunity here to do that.”
