Sunderland striker Altidore keen for Fletcher partnership to prosper

Sunderland forward Jozy Altidore is excited at the prospect of linking up with Steven Fletcher again after Sunday's derby win against Newcastle. "It was nice to play with him, he frees up space for me to do things and vice versa," Altidore told BBC Newcastle.

"We can only create more opportunities if we get the chance to play together but there is also [Fabio] Borini, [Connor] Wickham and Ji [Dong-Won]," Altidore added.

"We have a lot of players who can play up front."
