Brandon Taylor has signed a new one-year deal at Sunderland AFC.
The defender joined the club aged nine, progressing through the ranks at the Academy of Light before becoming a key player for the Under-18s and Under-23s.
Taylor, 21, made his first-team debut during the 2018-19 season in an EFL Trophy win over Morecambe.
After signing the extension, the defender said: “I’m over the moon to sign a new contract at the club I’ve played for since the age of nine. The manager gave me a taste of first-team football last season, so I’ll continue to work hard and hopefully I can earn more opportunities during the upcoming campaign.”
