The 21-year-old spent an unproductive year at West Bromwich Albion last season where it was expected that he could learn under the defensively-minded Tony Pulis but ended up playing only a bit part in the Baggies' season.
Signed by former Toffees boss Roberto Martinez from MK Dons, Galloway impressed as an auxiliary left back deputising for the injured Leighton Baines but was farmed out on loan by Ronald Koeman last year.
The Zimbabwe-born defender will get another chance to develop his career with a season on Wearside where he hopes to get plenty of playing time supporting the Black Cats' bid to return to the Premier League at the first time of asking.
He will link up with former Blues team-mates Bryan Oviedo and Darron Gibson and could be joined at the Stadium of Light by Tyias Browning – he is also reported to be joining Sunderland on loan – and Aiden McGeady whom manager Simon Grayson is trying to acquire in a permanent deal.

There's still the forgotten man, Luke Garbutt. I believe Koeman doesn't trust him, though.

A good season down in the Championship could do wonders Michael Keane went down to come back up again, hopefully the same happens with Brendan & Tyias if he moves there too.

Sunderland appear to me like we were before BK shored things up. BK didn't rip up trees, he has weathered the storm. Took bloody sight longer than I ever wanted, or could have imagined. That said, he's weathered the storm.
Joining "The Mackems"? Heavens above, Brendan, YouTube "Talking Heads". "Little Creatures" (1985) track two.

On the same subject, what on earth happened (or is happening) to Garbutt? His must be one of the most frustrating "wrong turn" scenarios in any lpayers development? His games in Europe were seriously good and there was a feeling he was a natural successor to Baines.
Do the Club have a specialized role for someone to deal with those youngsters who seem to go astray?
