Sunderland have confirmed the departure of academy striker = Paul Reid reveal

Max Thompson, a Sunderland academy striker, has left the club. Max Thompson, a Sunderland teenager, has left the club to chase more playing time abroad.

Thompson joined Sunderland in the summer of 2022 after leaving Burnley, and he made an immediate impression in the U21 side. Since then, the teenager has found it much more difficult to break into the starting lineup on a consistent basis, and he has seen virtually little playing time in recent weeks and months.
As a result, Academy director Robin Nicholls believes it is the appropriate decision for the 21-year-old to move on for the sake of his career.

Thompson’s attitude and application, according to Nicholls, have been “great,” and the club will support the striker in his future steps.

“Max’s gametime has been limited this season and after maintaining an open dialogue with him throughout the past few months, all parties agreed that Max should be free to pursue new opportunities,” Nicholls said in a statement.

“Throughout his time at the club, his attitude and application have been fantastic, and I know how much he has enjoyed working with our staff – a sentiment shared by those who have played a role in Max’s development over the past year.” “All at the Academy of Light wish him the best of luck for the future, and we will continue to support Max as he takes his next steps.”

Sunderland’s U21s face Peterborough in the Premier League Cup on Monday night, with several members of Tony Mowbray’s senior squad expected to play.
