Sunderland Association Football Club Current Players
Wade is the son of former Hull City player Warren Joyce and signed for Sunderland in summer 2012.
The midfielder was originally at Manchester United as a youngster and also had a spell at Tranmere Rovers.
Wade then joined Bury in summer 2011 and featured regularly for the Shakers at reserve and youth level in 2011-12.
He was offered a trial by Sunderland and impressed the coaching staff enough to earn a full-time contract at the Stadium of Light.
Wade was born in Liverpool but is eligible for Wales and has previously been called up for under-19 duty only to be forced to withdraw through injury.
