VINNIE STEELS believes he has unfinished business at Sunderland after re-joining the club last week.

The 19-year-old was part of the Black Cats’ academy as a youngster before signing for Darlington, and after leaving the Quakers, he moved to National League side York City where he made his first-team debut aged 16.

He was then snapped up by Burnley and after leaving the Premier League outfit, he returned to Wearside to link up with the Under-23 side.

“It’s obviously a lot different from when I was here at Under-14,” Steels said.

“There’s a lot of coaches I remember from the first-time round like Elliott Dickman, Scott Pearce and Lewis Dickman, so it’s been really good to catch up with them.

“I really enjoyed my time here when I was younger, and I think I have unfinished business.

“Playing at York City was a big learning curve for me and an experience that will benefit me in the long run, as I learned the physical side of the game.”

He continued: “We’ve had a long time out but it’s great to be back, everyone has come back in decent shape.

“I can’t wait to get out on the grass playing games now and hopefully it will be a successful season.”
