James Talbot looks destined for stardom after sealing his move to Sunderland to join the likes of John O’Shea, Keiren Westwood and James McClean at the Stadium of Light.

The Home Farm and Republic of Ireland under-16 goalkeeper, recently crowned the FAI Schoolboy of the Year, will travel to Wearside in the summer.

He travelled to Sunderland last week to train with the club and has already been congratulated by the likes of national team mainstay John O’Shea.

“It is great to be at the same club as them,” he told

“I talked to John and he congratulated me on the award.

“[Signing for Sunderland] feels great. It’s not hit me yet. I had a few trials and when I was asked to sign I was over the moon.”

Talbot turned down advances from a number of clubs before settling on a move to Sunderland.

“As soon as I got here I knew I wanted to sign,” he added. “I felt at home and everything was great.

“The coaches, the other staff, the pitches – it is brilliant.”

“I can’t wait to start at Sunderland now. The conversations I’ve had with the staff here have all been good.

“My parents have been over for a trip as well. I’ll be coming back at Easter before starting full-time in July.

“I’m excited to come over here. There’s some nerves as well, but every time I’ve been here I’ve loved it.”
