Altrincham earn Sunderland windfall from Watmore appearance

Sunderland have coughed up to Altrincham for Duncan Watmore.

The Sunderland Echo says Watmore's tenth Premier League start for Sunderland has handed his former club a five-figure cash windfall.

The 22-year-old started on the right-hand side for the Black Cats in their 3-0 home loss to Everton on Monday night.

And with David Moyes throwing him in from the start his ex-employers, Vanarama National League North club Altrincham, are quids in.

England U/21 international Watmore made the switch from non-league football in May 2013, signing for an undisclosed fee.
