Former Peterborough United forward Andrea Borg and Wolves youngster Kevin Berkoe both featured in Sunderland Reserve’s clash with Stoke City’s second string side on Monday night, the Sunderland Echo has reported.

Chelsea youngster Ruben Sammut has been on trial with the League One side over the past few weeks and he featured once again for their Under-23s side. Sammut is out of contract at the end of the current season and could be available on a free transfer.

After progressing through the academy with Posh, he made his first team debut in April 2017. The Malta Under-19 international went on to play four times for The Posh before joining local side Kettering Town on loan during the first half of the 2018/19 season.

Aged 17, Kevin Berkoe is a defender for Premier League side Wolves. He plays most of his football in the Under-18 Premier League, featuring for Wolves Under-18s ten times so far this season. Berkoe has played 24 times for Wolves Under-18s, featuring at both left-back and left-midfield.
