Sunderland have announced that defender Tom Flanagan has signed a two-year deal with the club ahead of the 2020/21 campaign.
Flanagan’s contract was set to expire at the end of the 2019/20 season, which ended in disappointment for Phil Parkinson’s side in League One.
The Black Cats finished eighth in the third-tier standings, after the majority of clubs in League One agreed to curtail this year’s league campaign on a PPG (points per game) basis.
