The midfielder joined the Mariners on loan in the summer from Sunderland.

The highly rated 19-year-old came through the Academy ranks at the Stadium of Light, making the bench during the 16/17 Premier League season on six occasions after impressing for the Under 23's during that season. Despite progressing through to the first team, Embleton had to wait until the 17/18 season for his professional debut, coming off the bench in December 2017 in a 0-0 draw with Wolves in the Sky Bet Championship.

Embleton has also represented England from the U17's through to the U20's, picking up a 2017 Toulon Tournament winners' medal, scoring vs. Scotland in the semi-finals of the tournament. Embleton also converted a penalty in the final vs. Ivory Coast in which the Three Lions were triumphant. Embleton was also part of the 2018 Under-19 European Championship squad, picking up a Man of the Match award for two assists and a goal in their 3-2 victory over Turkey. The goal was also nominated for the 2018 UEFA Goal of the Season award.
