Connor Wickham has been on fire for Sunderland of late, tallying five goals and an assist in his last three matches. But now the young striker is in the news for a different reason, revealing on his Instagram account a massive new chest tattoo.

The tattoo appears to read "Illis quos amo deserviam" (alternately reported as "Luis quos amo deserviam"), which translates to "I will devote myself to those I love."

It's certainly bold, but we've seen worse footballer tattoos
