New contract: Jack Diamond signs long-term deal

Sunderland AFC winger Jack Diamond has signed a new long-term contract at the Stadium of Light.

The 21-year-old, who has made his senior debut for the club in October 2018, has committed his future to the club until June 2024.

After firing Harrogate Town to promotion last season at Wembley Stadium whilst on loan, Diamond has made 27 first-team appearances during the 2020-21 campaign.

His first senior goal for SAFC arrived earlier this season in the EFL Trophy – en route to his second Wembley success in eight months – with his second coming in an outstanding 4-1 win over Lincoln City.

After putting pen to paper, Diamond said: “I’ve been here since I was 14, so to be offered the chance to play for Sunderland – when they are on the up – is a fantastic opportunity for me. I’ve broken into the first team this season under the new Head Coach and I’m pleased to be rewarded with a new contract, but my goal stays the same and that’s to play at the highest level I possibly can with this club.”

Head Coach Lee Johnson added: “I’m delighted for Jack that he has signed a new contract. This is just the start for him – he has fantastic potential and some great attributes, and his performances are getting stronger and stronger as the days go by. We are very excited about Jack’s future with Sunderland AFC.”
