Sunderland striker Mikael Mandron is open to a loan move away.

The Black Cats have high hopes for the 18-year-old, who was promoted to the first-team dressing room over the summer and spent the entire close season with the senior professionals.

"I will just see what happens with a loan or anything like that," Mandron told The Journal.

"At the moment I am just concentrating on what is happening here.

"I am concentrating on my football - if a loan happens then I will give everything there but if not I will concentrate on learning as much as I can and trying to take any opportunity that comes my way."
