Gateshead sign Sunderland goalkeeper Ben Wilson

Ben Wilson
Wilson is yet to make his senior Black Cats debut

Gateshead have signed Sunderland goalkeeper Ben Wilson on a youth loan that will expire on 4 February.

The 19-year-old is yet to make his senior Black Cats debut but goes into the squad for Saturday's Blue Square Bet Premier visit of Stockport.

Jak Alnwick's return to Newcastle United and injury to Paul Farman means Wilson comes in as cover for Tim Deasy.

Earlier this season Wilson made one appearance on loan at Harrogate Town in a 1-1 draw against Bishop's Stortford.
