Good signing for Sunderland?

Willis had been on the books of Coventry his entire career until now, and the 24-year-old is hugely experienced at the lower league levels.

Sunderland need young and energetic players in their squad, and Willis will enhance the quality of Jack Ross’s side for the 2019-20 campaign in which they will be aiming to finish in the top two of the League One table.
