Irish keeper James Talbot excited about Sunderland switch

Irish goalkeeper James Talbot is excited to be moving to Sunderland.

The young goalkeeper, who hails from Dublin, will join the club's under-18 side in the summer and was recently crowned the FAI's Schoolboy of the Year.

"It is great to be at the same club as them," he told "I talked to John and he congratulated me on the award.

"[Signing here] feels great. It's not hit me yet. I had a few trials and when I was asked to sign I was over the moon."
