“Really liking the statement of intent from the club getting the players impressing in the academy tied down now”
“Well done Ellis. Brilliant news.”
“Great news again #SAFC“
“Wait is this Sunderland actually keeping their youngsters and not selling them on for money “
“Two in one day, love to see it.”
“Keep them coming!”
Judging by the comments, many Sunderland fans are overjoyed with the news of a new contract for Taylor.
The 18-year-old’s new contract is the first professional contract of his career after coming through the Sunderland academy.
Taylor played eight games for Sunderland’s U18s this season, scoring four and assisting once before moving up to play for Sunderland’s U23s in Premier League 2 Division 2, where he scored just once in 16 appearances for the Black Cats, as they finished fifth in the league.
A player for the future for the Black Cats, but it is good to see them tying down a player who looks like he has good potential for the future.
