Sunderland AFC have brought in Amad on a season-long loan deal from Manchester United. The 20-year-old forward/winger has made three senior appearances for Côte d'Ivoire and three appearances for MUFC.
Amad said: “I feel good and very positive about this opportunity, so I’m happy to be here. It was a great experience to play with Manchester United, but I’m here for a new challenge and I want to try my best to bring a lot of success to the Club. I feel good physically and I think this is the best team for me to progress and although I’ve never been to the Stadium of Light before, I know the supporters are great so I hope we can win many games together.”
