Young Tottenham Hotspur striker Kaziah Sterling has joined Sunderland on loan for the remainder of the season.
Tthe 20-year-old will link up with the League One side as they look to return to the Championship at the first time of asking.
Sterling made his competitive senior debut for the club in the Champions League as an 88th-minute substitute for Dele Alli in Spurs’ final group game against APOEL Nicosia in December 2017 and has had limited opportunities since.
Due to Tottenham’s attacking injury crisis following Harry Kane and Dele Alli both being sidelined, along with Heung-min Son’s recent international duty, Sterling has been named on the bench in recent weeks and came on as a late sub in the FA Cup defeat at Crystal Palace.
A move to the Stadium of Light will see Sterling gain regular first team football after the Black Cats sold Josh Maja to Bordeaux.
Sterling scored eight times in 20 games last season to become the club’s leading scorer in the Premier League 2 competition.
