Knott Leaves On Loan

Billy Knott has once again landed near London as he moves out on loan.

Billy Knott has once again been loaned out by Sunderland in a bid to get him even more first team action and exposure.

The youngster who arrived from Chelsea in 2010 on a free transfer has previously enjoyed successful spells at AFC Wimbledon and Woking, although both are teams well below the standard he could be playing at, so it's little surprise he did so well.

Knott will once again return somewhere near his native London with League Two side Wycombe Wanderers, who looked after Louis Laing for us a year back.

Kevin Ball believes it's a good move for Knott, telling the clubs official site yesterday;

I think it's good for him to get a challenge in league football.

There are parts of Billy's game that are outstanding, there are parts that Billy knows if he can get better then he'll give himself even more chance of playing regular league football.

It's a good opportunity for him; Gareth Ainsworth will look after him and the club will look after him.

Once-heralded as a big player in the future for Sunderland it seems to me that his time is beginning to pass. Very talented, but either the talent isn't really there, hence him not going on loan at a higher level, or he prefers to be the big fish in a small pond. Either way, neither are conducive to a future at Sunderland.
