Sunderland are on the brink of securing Jake Clarke-Salter on loan from Chelsea until the end of the season, according to Sky sources.

It is understood the two clubs have agreed a deal in principle, with the 20-year-old defender expected to travel to Wearside on Sunday to finalise the move.

Clarke-Salter was included in the Chelsea squad for Saturday's FA Cup tie at Norwich.
