Loan switch: Wearne joins Torquay United

Sunderland AFC can confirm that Stephen Wearne has joined Torquay United on loan until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old joins Gary Johnson’s side after making three first-team appearances this campaign, scoring twice in that time.

Attacking midfielder Wearne is in contention for the Gulls’ fixture against Dagenham & Redbridge tomorrow in the Vanarama National League.

Following the loan departures of Will Harris and Wearne, Sporting Director Kristjaan Speakman said: “Our plan was to obtain loans for both players in this window and we are delighted to have achieved the right opportunities for them. Having had the opportunity to play for Sunderland this season, both are eager to participate in more senior games and demonstrate their progression over the last year. We wish them well and as always, we will track their progression closely.”
