Adam Reed: Expecting to be on his way out of Sunderland in the summer

Adam Reed: Expecting to be on his way out of Sunderland in the summer

The 21-year-old midfielder will see his current deal at the Stadium of Light expire at the end of the season, and he is not expected to be offered fresh terms.

Reed claims he would be exploring his options even if he was tied to the Black Cats long-term, with it important for him to be playing regularly at this stage of his career.

With opportunities having been hard to come by on Wearside, the youngster is currently taking in a month-long loan spell at League One strugglers Portsmouth.

On his future, Reed told the Sunderland Echo: "My contract is up in the summer and I've been out on loan a lot, so I've played quite a few league games now. But then you go back and you don't get an opportunity - so it gets a bit frustrating.

"I know I will have to look at my future and I will find out sooner rather than later whether they will offer me a contract or whether I want to find another club and play first-team football.

"I've been there a long time and it will be hard to make that decision if I decide to leave. But every player wants to play first-team football once you've had that taste.

"There is nothing like league football and if I am meant to play at the highest level, I will get there."

Massive club

In linking up with Pompey, Reed finds himself at a club sweating on their very existence.

The youngster, who has also taken in loan spells at Brentford, Bradford and Leyton Orient in the past, claims to be enjoying himself, though.

He added: "I've been on loan at other League One clubs but this is a massive club - the biggest one I've been on loan at.

"I don't mind travelling and playing for clubs if it is the right move for me."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
