Stockport County sign Sunderland keeper Lewis King on loan

Stockport County have signed goalkeeper Lewis King on loan from Sunderland until the end of the season.

King, 18, will provide cover after Ian Ormson was sent off against Southport last weekend, while Dane Smith is out through injury.

After joining the Black Cats' reserves from Derby County in 2009, injuries have held back King's progress.

He was part of the title-winning under-18s team in his debut season, before making the step up to reserve level.
