Crawley Town sign Sunderland goalkeeper Johnny Maddison on loan until the end of the season.

Crawley Town boss Richie Barker has revealed that the League One outfit have signed Sunderland goalkeeper Johnny Maddison on loan until the end of the season.

The 18-year-old, who is regarded as a future first-team player at the Black Cats, is expected to be on the bench for Tuesday's clash against Preston North End.

Barker told the club's official website: "We are delighted to have Johnny on board. He has been training for a few days with us and you can see that he has all the attributes to develop into a good goalkeeper.

"He is working with Sunderland's first-team squad and has been a regular in their Academy team. This will give him more experience and, of course, provide us with cover for Paul Jones."

Experienced stopper Michel Kuipers departed Crawley last week.
