24-Year-Old Forward Sunderland Premier
Jozy Altidore Contract Information:
Signed a four-year deal with Sunderland in July 2013 after a $13 million transfer from AZ Alkmaar.
Altidore, who came on in the 81st minute of Sunderland's Premier League opener against West Brom last Saturday, is nearing full fitness following a severe hamstring injury suffered during the World Cup, but he remains behind Steven Fletcher and Connor Wickham on the depth chart, the Sunderland Echo reports.
Sunderland manager Gus Poyet said Altidore is in good spirits, and appears to be happier now than he's ever been at Sunderland, although that isn't saying much after last season's colossal disappointment when Altidore netted just one Premier League goal.
