Hebburn Town have signed Daniel Wright from Dunston UTS.
The 21-year-old can play anywhere in midfield and he has been capped by England at Under-17 level.
A Sunderland academy graduate, Wright has also played for South Shields and Whitley Bay (loan).
On his new man, manager Kevin Bolam said: “I’m really pleased to add Daniel to the squad. He is another one I have known since his junior days and he will add quality to an already strong squad.
“He is now 21 and the bonus is he knows a lot of the current group, some of which are the same age as him. I’m looking forward to introducing Dan to the group and I would like to take this opportunity to wish him all the best whilst he is with us.”
