Sunderland are set to announce the loan signing of 21 year old defender Frederik Alves from West Ham United.

The Danish centre half only joined the Hammers in January, arriving for £1m from Silksborg - the club he made his first forays into senior football with, making his senior debut in 2018.

Alves has featured a number of times in pre-season for David Moyes side, but joins up with Sunderland in League One in a bid to gain vital first team experience.
