With Kenywne Jones leaving for Stoke, Welbeck really should get the opportunity to shine and bring on his game.
Danny got 45 minutes for England U-21s on Tuesday night, in their 2-0 win over Uzbekistan U-21, replacing Wigan’s Victor Moses.
“I’m delighted to be able to come to Sunderland – I’ve come here to get some experience and I’m looking forward to it,” Welbeck said. “Sunderland are a big club. They have been in the Premier League for a few years now. I’m hungry and determined to make an impression here. A few Premier League clubs were interested in taking me on loan. I spoke to Steve Bruce a few times on the phone and the words he got across to me persuaded me to come here. When I knew Sunderland were interested I didn’t really look back and I’m looking forward to giving it my all here.”
