All Whites defender Sam Brotherton will shift from the United States to England after being signed by Premier League club Sunderland.

The 20-year-old centre back will link with the club's under-23 team in a deal which finishes after the 2018-19 season.

The lanky Brotherton recently finished his second season with the University of Wisconsin Badgers.

He has played seven internationals since 2015, having taken a full part in the last year's victorious Nations Cup campaign in Papua New Guinea before facing the United States in Washington DC last October.

Brotherton joins former New Zealand under-17 goalkeeper Michael Woud in the Sunderland age group ranks.
