It's been confirmed Knott will be offered new terms by Sunderland.
â€śI think playing in the Conference is a lot different to the style of football with the under 21â€™s; itâ€™s a lot more physical and in your face,â€ť he explained to safc.com.
â€śI know technically Iâ€™m a good player but both myself and Bally [Kevin Ball] felt I needed to go and work on my game off the ball â€“ in terms of when to press and when not to press.
â€śIâ€™m getting the chance to do that at Woking and, before my injury, I was probably the fittest Iâ€™ve ever been.
â€śIâ€™m eager to prove myself and come back to Sunderland a much better player.â€ť
