Arrival: Feeney joins the Lads

Sunderland AFC are delighted to announce the signing of former Everton centre-back Morgan Feeney.

The 21-year-old joins Phil Parkinson’s side on a short-term deal after leaving the Toffees last month following a 13-year stay with the Merseyside club.

Feeney captained Everton Under-23s as they twice won the Premier League 2 in 2016-17 and 2018-19, and they completed a domestic double in the latter campaign by adding the Premier League Cup to their haul.  

The defender has also represented England at Under-17, 18 and 19 level, while also spending time on loan with Tranmere Rovers last season.

After sealing a move to the Stadium of Light, Feeney said: “I’m made up to be here. It’s a massive club and when a team like Sunderland want you, you don’t think twice. After such a long time at Everton, I couldn’t really ask for much more than to come to a club like this and I can’t wait to get started.”

Manager Phil Parkinson added: “Morgan has been training with us for a few weeks and he’s done very well.  He’s a player with excellent pedigree having been in and around the England Under-19 set-up, and he will bring added competition to the defence.”
