How is Jack Diamond getting on away from Sunderland on loan?

Bringing Jack Diamond back to the EnviroVent Stadium has certainly been some coup for Harrogate Town, who welcomed their former loanee back for a second spell this summer. 

The Sunderland youngster is looking to get some more regular game time under his belt away fro the Stadium of Light after his breakthrough campaign last season and already appears to be taking this opportunity in his stride under the guidance of Simon Weaver.

A pacey and direct winger, Diamond became a regular under Lee Johnson for much of last season and played a role in helping his side to life the Papa John’s Trophy.

After scoring once and assisting a further four over the course of 34 appearances across all competitions, the Black Cats took the decision to reward him for his fine form by handing him a new contract in the North East until the summer of 2024, thus underlining their collective faith in his ability.

However after making one League One appearance this term, the attacker was seemingly deemed to be surplus to requirements by Johnson and co after the arrival of some new recruits in that area of the field and the subsequent return of various loanees such as Elliot Embleton, which has led to the winger’s return to Harrogate.

Did these 25 Sunderland transfers actually happen?

In the summer of 2005 Sunderland signed Andy Gray from Sheffield Wednesday - True or false?

During his last spell with the Sulphurites, Diamond helped the club to get promoted into the Football League and will now be looking to help his side to more success as the currently sit fifth in the League Two standings.

So far he has largely been utilised on the right hand side by Weaver and co, plundering two goals and one assist as a result as he continue to look to improve on his criticality and all round decision making.

The latter is clearly something that Johnson has identified as having room for improvement and it will certainly help that Diamond is playing in a side which plays free flowing football that involves a lot of movement from the other forward players in order to create chances and openings.

This will in turn encourage the 21-year-old to find the right passes in order to rack up more assists and as a result he will slowly become a more complete player ahead of his return to Wearside.

Diamond certainly has a future with Sunderland but for now he has to bide his time and take his chances.
