Sunderland captain John O'Shea has been impressed by two of their new youngsters.
Oâ€™Shea has picked out young guns David Moberg Karlsson and El-Hadji Ba as two to watch as Sunderland prepare for the next stage of their revolution.
He told The Journal: "They might not start straight away, but Karlsson and El-Hadji Ba in the centre of midfield are two very bright prospects whoâ€™ve shown glimpses of what theyâ€™re capable of.
â€œI wouldnâ€™t like to put too much pressure on some of the so-called older signings. Theyâ€™re all showing lots of good signs and hopefully thereâ€™s lot of good things to come from them."
