Fleetwood Town have signed Sunderland youngster Mikael Mandron on loan until the end of the season.

The 19-year-old French striker made two substitute appearances for the Black Cats in the Premier League last season, but has not played a game this term.

"I am really excited to discover football in the Football League and hopefully be able to play in the first team," he told the Fleetwood website.external-link

"I'll give my best here and work as hard as possible to get in the team."

Mandron, who netted 12 goals in 13 games for Sunderland's Under-18 team in 2012-13, has stepped up to their Under-21 side this season, scoring six goals in seven appearances.
