It's been quiet at Sunderland where incoming transfers have been concerned, with most of the focus on players leaving the club. However we finally have some small movement in the transfer market, as Sunderland have invited Mexican striker Kevin Chaurand to Sunderland on trial.
The 19-year-old striker, who plays for Club Celaya in Ascenso MC (the second tier of Mexican football), will join Sunderland for pre-season training in July as the young striker looks to earn a permanent move to the Stadium of Light;
We've talked with Alejandro (Marquez) [Chairman of Club Celaya] and it's good are realizing that I'm working well and keep humble with your head up and hope that I can earn a place there.
He told me that I got just right now got a letter of invitation to go to them a for a few days to do pre-season, from 8 July to look forward and see what happens, I am ready to go.
It's not clear yet whether the trial will take place at the Academy of Light or in America, which may suggest the club may have an American trip lined up for either the first team or development squad;
It's not known whether it would be in the U.S. or England, would be to see in the coming weeks and do well.
After learning of Sunderland's interest, Chaurand was quick to start following Sunderland, with the striker liking what he saw from the team as the season came to an end and he's determined to make the most of his chance to join a Premier League club;
Alejandro had already spoken to me two or three months ago and I started to slowly follow them, they are a good team, I like the project and look forward and see how things go,
Always motivates and thinking at that time and train from right now to get that opportunity.
Presumably should Sunderland sign the striker permanently, Chaurand will initially appear for Kevin Ball's development squad, in a similar vein to Duncan Watmore, El-Hadji Ba and David Moberg Karlsson.
