Jordan Pickford has been recalled from his loan spell at Preston, to raise big question marks over the Sunderland futures of both Vito Mannone and Costel Pantilimon.

Sunderland have spent several weeks considering whether to bring keeper Pickford back to the Stadium of Light, with the England Under-21 international has been starring for Preston in the Championship.

Sam Allardyce has now decided to give Washington-born Pickford an opportunity at his boyhood club, although the 21-year-old will NOT be eligible for tomorrow’s crunch basement battle at home to Aston Villa.
