It's that beautiful time of year when the FIFA hype steps up a notch with the demo set for release, and the new game close to being unleashed on the public. Player ratings are starting to flow from EA Sports' website, while there are unconfirmed - but highly likely - ratings floating around for more than just the Top 50 players ahead of FIFA 16. Sunderland are a strange team. After an alarmingly dire start to the season, there have been some quality additions to the Black Cats' squad and all of a sudden they look like a team who could enjoy a decent season in the Premier League under Dick Advocaat's stewardship. These extra additions of class have gone a long way towards enhancing their virtual standings. The official confirmation is yet to come from EA, meaning one or two ratings may be subject to change, however the majority of the following ratings will remain for the Sunderland Ultimate Team squad.
25. DeAndre Yedlin - 70
DeAndre Yedlin is the newest addition to the Sunderland squad, and according to the Overall ratings, he's the poorest, with a 70. The 22-year-old USMNT right back has an ace up his sleeve though, a 93 Pace rating which will see him keep up with almost every player in the world. He could be excellent.
