WY­COMBE WANDERES man­ager Gareth Ainsworth is rel­ish­ing the op­por­tu­nity to add Pre­mier League tal­ent to his squad af­ter sign­ing Sun­der­land mid­fielder Billy Knott on loan.

The 20-year-old made his Black Cats de­but on the fi­nal day of last sea­son, against Tot­ten­ham at White Hart Lane, and has pre­vi­ously en­joyed loan spells at AFC Wim­ble­don and Wok­ing.

Knott scored eight goals in 20 ap­pear­ances for Wok­ing and clinched AFC Wim­ble­don’s young player of the year award and Ainsworth hopes he can have a sim­i­lar im­pact at Adams Park.

“Billy’s a for­ward-think­ing mid­fielder. He can play out on the left, in the No.10 role and in cen­tral-mid­field.”
