Watmore delighted Sunderland boss Moyes backing youth

Duncan Watmore is convinced Sunderland boss David Moyes will back youth.

Since he has taken charge England U/21 international Watmore, as well as academy product Lynden Gooch and Joel Asoro, have all been involved at first-team level.

“It is good to have some young players in and around the first team squad and doing well," said Watmore to the Sunderland Echo.

“I played alongside Lynden in the Under-21s and it is great to be playing alongside him in the first team now.

“I have really enjoyed working with the manager since he arrived in the summer, he has been class to work with.

“We need to make sure we keep performing and make sure we can contribute to winning games for Sunderland."
