Everton have confirmed that Brendan Galloway will spend the coming season in the Championship with Sunderland.

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.
