Sunderland AFC are pleased to announce the signing of Michael Spellman ahead of the 2022-23 season.
The 19-year-old winger signs a one-year contract having spent an extended period on trial with the club’s Under-23 side during the last campaign.
Spellman will once again join up with Mike Dodds and Michael Proctor’s U23 setup for pre-season, having come through at Park View Academy and represented Chester-le-Street United.
“I’m delighted to sign for the club and can’t wait for the season coming up,” the teenager said upon completion of the deal.
“It feels like a weight lifted off my shoulders to get the deal done after playing here on trial before the summer, and I feel I can bring hard work, desire and hopefully create and score goals.
“The pre-season trip to Canada will be a great experience and I feel that it’s important to play in different areas and expand your game.”
The deal to sign Spellman is subject to all regulatory processes.
