Sunderland Association Football Club Current Players

Jassem Sukar

Jas’ is a central defender from Hartlepool who brings a physical presence and plenty of pace.

As well as playing in the middle of defence, he can also slot in at left-back when required.

He has been with Sunderland since the under-13 level and began a two-year full-time scholarship with the club in summer 2012.

Jassem made his youth-team debut in 2011-12 as a substitute while still at school and went on to make 19 appearances for the under-18’s in the 2012-13 campaign.

Unfortunately Jassem missed the majority of the 2013-14 season with a long-term injury, but he returned to fitness during the 2014-15 campaign and was on the bench for the U21s’ 1-0 win over Leicester City.
