LEFT BACK VOKINS JOINS ON LOAN FROM SOUTHAMPTON



Sunderland have brought some cover in at left back in the shape of Jake Vokins, who joins on loan from Southampton. Vokins has represented England at Under-17, Under-18 and Under-19 level.


Vokins said: “I want to come here and play games, and help the team get promoted this season. I feel I can bring my qualities to the team; I’m good on the ball and I can deliver crosses, so hopefully that allows the team to score more goals. It’s a big club and I can’t wait to get started.”


Lee Johnson added: “Jake is a bright young player, who is clearly rated by Southampton. Our full-backs have a similar philosophy to him – defensively and offensively – so we think he will fit in nicely and we are looking forward to working with him. We are grateful to Southampton for entrusting us with his development.”
