Sunderland defender Donald Love says he is growing in confidence and experience with every game he plays for the club.
A summer signing from Manchester United, alongside Paddy McNair, Love started brightly but his form tailed off and he was eventually dropped from the side by boss David Moyes.
Love was replaced by Billy Jones in the squad but has fought his way back into the side and is now pleased with the way his performances are going.
He said: “It was always going to take a bit of time for the new signings to settle, I think the gaffer took me out at the right time after the Shrewsbury game because I was poor that game, I admit that.
“Hopefully I can do well for him now and learn a lot off him.
“I’ll play anywhere, as long as I’m playing.”
