Sunderland manager Martin Oâ€™Neill authorised a spell with the Yorkshire club in order to provide the England under-21 international with first-team action.
Speaking to Wednesdayâ€™s official website before the draw with Derby, he said:
â€śI need to play games and after speaking to the manager and with the size of the club, I jumped at the chance to come here.
â€śItâ€™s always important to have the managerâ€™s backing and hopefully I can come here and make an impact.â€ť
He added: â€śAs a striker you want to score in every game. I want to come here and show everyone what Iâ€™m capable of.
â€śMy confidence is high and hopefully Iâ€™ll add another dimension to the team.â€ť
