Walsall have signed forward Jordan Cook, 21, on loan from Sunderland for the rest of the season.

The loan deadline day deal is subject to Premier League clearance.

Cook made his debut for the Black Cats against Manchester United on Boxing Day, and has also played against Chelsea this season.

Walsall manager Dean Smith said: "He is another player that has been on our radar for some time. He will be a welcome addition to the squad."

Should Premier League clearance be received, Cook will be available for Walsall's game at Milton Keynes on Friday.

Smith added: "He's played regularly for Sunderland reserves and has also broken into their first team this season, so it shows how highly they rate him.

"The lad can play down the middle or out wide and is full of enthusiasm and pace, something that we need right now."
