Browning joins Galloway at Sunderland for the season

Saturday 8 July 2017  8 Comments  [Jump to last]
Tyias Browning's season-long loan to Sunderland has been confirmed with the young defender joining his Everton team-mate Brendan Galloway on Wearside.

Browning overcame a serious knee injury last year to make his return to the Under-23s after making the breakthrough to the first-team as an auxiliary right-back under former boss Roberto Martinez.

He will get the opportunity now to gain more competitive experience as the Black Cats bid to return to the Premier League at the first time of asking following their relegation in May.

A chance for Browning to get back on track and forge a decent career.

Whether that is at Everton has to be doubtful considering age, previous loan at Preston and the club attracting better quality players.

Agreed, Charlie, this is one last chance for a slender opportunity. But the opportunity is there. Three of our top four centerbacks will likely be gone next season. If Browning steps up and becomes a high-performing starter for Sunderland, he could possibly come back and claim one of those spots in 2018.

Unlikely, but possible.

Presumably both play full back on either side for starters but a spell as Championship central defenders could be the making of these two. Good moves for the pair.

A chance to play in the same back four in the Championship. A very good idea for a loan. They will play at a good level, will get a chance to develop an understanding together, will play in front of a huge and passionate Sunderland crowd, and will get regular football. Grayson had Preston playing some nice football last season as well.

Decent manager, Grayson, and I agree with Kieran that playing them in the same back four can only be good for them. It will also make it easier for them to have a mate already in the squad. Let's hope they both develop whilst there.

I heard that Burnley were looking to buy Lacine Kone from Sunderland to replace Michael Keane. If he goes, then it may allow one of our boys to get time in the centre of defense for Sunderland.

Alternatively maybe we will move for Kone!

Hope Galloway and Browning get a good run of games under their belts. A hard season in the Championship is just the sort of experience that will toughen then up for regular games in the Premier League.

Galloway has missed a season with the WBA loan debacle and Browning's missing a chunk of time injured - both need some regular football at a decent level so these loans should hopefully allow them to get back on track.

Not sure how many top flight seasons Williams has left and Jags is already on the path to retirement so having these two youngsters ready next season would be a boost.

Hope those lads don't suffer too much at the Stadium of Shite.
