The youngster has impressed many in his breakthrough season and was named Exeter’s player of the year at the club’s end of season awards ceremony last week.

Sunderland are on the search to find young talent to bulk their squad up having narrowly avoided relegation. Also they will be looking for players like Grimes to replace departing members of the squad.

Sunderland are among a host of clubs from the Premier League and the Sky Bet Championship who are showing signs of interest in the youngster. However, it seems the ‘Black Cats’ are going to pounce first in the chase for his signature.
