Harte enjoying Sunderland life
The 30-year-old former Leeds full-back came back to England after three years in Spanish football with Levante when Roy Keane handed him the chance to prove himself all over again.
Harte said: "I'm loving it. I feel young again - I'm just excited to be playing football.
"It's not that I did not enjoy my time over in Spain, but I have been dying to get back to England."
