Sunderland have offered young goalkeeper Jack McIntyre a contract to sign on with the club but it has not yet been signed and they are waiting on a decision from the stopper, it is being reported by the Sunderland Echo.
The Black Cats will be pleased enough about their start to the season in the third tier this year and it’s clear that they have eyes on winning promotion this campaign.
In terms of the longer-term future, though, they have identified McIntyre as someone that they want to keep around a little bit longer to see how he develops, with him spending a trial period at the club where he has played for the u23 side.
Indeed, he’s done enough to impress and earn himself an offer, which the Sunderland Echo reveals has been tabled but, as yet, he has not inked the thing and so the wait to see what he’s going to do continues.
McIntyre is a young stopper and so this is a signing for the future, if it even happens of course.
He has been on the books at Everton so it’s clear he has some talent and potential, and Sunderland obviously like the look of him from his performances for the u23 side.
They’ve offered him something longer term, then, but it remains to be seen just whether he is going to commit to that.
