Sunderland midfielder Jack Colback has signed a new two-year contract that will keep him with the north-east side until June 2014.

The 22-year-old has played in 20 of the club's 21 games so far this season and scored his first senior goal in the 1-1 Premier League draw with Everton on Boxing Day.

He has recently been playing at left-back because of a defensive injury crisis at the Stadium of Light.
