“With regards to Ethan, the deal is we have him until January,” Jolley said.

“I think it could work out like Elliot [Embleton] last season where if it's appropriate at the time, we'll have the conversation with Sunderland and Ethan and if it's right for all parties we can maybe look to extend it.

"We're not at that point yet, but the way Ethan is going, it may be that Sunderland see him as part of their team in the second half of the season. We just have to wait and see.”
