The 20-year-old made his Black Cats debut on the final day of last season and has previously enjoyed loan spells at AFC Wimbledon and Woking.

"He's left-footed, got great quality on the ball and is tenacious in the tackle," manager Gareth Ainsworth told the club's official website.

"He's been making big noises up in Sunderland in their Under-21s.

"Billy's a forward-thinking midfielder. He can play out on the left, in the number 10 role and in central midfield."

Knott scored eight times in 20 appearances for Woking last season and scooped AFC Wimbledon's Young Player of the Year award in 2011/12.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
