Sunderland midfielder Adam Johnson was booed after coming on as a substitute against West Ham at Upton Park on Saturday.

The 27-year-old returned to training earlier this week after a club suspension was lifted which had been imposed following his arrest on suspicion of sexual activity with a girl under 16.

But newly-appointed Black Cats coach Dick Advocaat revealed the winger was available for Saturday’s trip to West Ham and he came on as a substitute for Steven Fletcher on 74 minutes during the Premier League match.

Johnson was released on police bail, which was extended to 23 April.
