Sunderland winger Rees Greenwood hopes for more first-team chances next season after making his senior debut at Watford.
Greenwood was handed a start at Vicarage Road on the final day of the campaign and impressed in the 2-2 draw.
The 20-year-old is a product of the club’s academy and Greenwood has confirmed he will train with the first-team squad during pre-season.
The winger was delighted to be involved against the Hornets and hopes he can secure more game-time in the 2016-17 campaign.
“I would like to think I can stay in and around the first team picture next season, but that’s not up to me,” he told the Sunderland Echo.
“I have been given the pre-season stuff, so it’s looking good.
“It has been my best season so far, I am really pleased with what I have done in the games and the Under-21s had a good season.
“I just want to get better and better as next season goes on and reach the highest level I can in my career.”
