Lee Barry Cattermole (born 21 March 1988) is an English footballer who plays as a midfielder for Sunderland in the Premier League. His preferred position is in central midfield. An England youth product, Cattermole has earned a reputation as a tough tackling midfielder due to his lengthy disciplinary record.

Cattermole began his professional career at Middlesbrough in 2005, having progressed through the club's academy. After making his debut for the club in January 2006, he became a regular player, and became the youngest man to captain Middlesbrough. After making 91 appearances in all competitions, he switched to Wigan Athletic in July 2008. He quickly became a regular for Wigan, making 35 appearances, but switched to Sunderland in August 2009. Despite a few injury problems early in his spell at the club, manager Steve Bruce selected him as the club's captain for the start of the 2010–11 season, a role he would hold for three seasons, until Paolo di Canio gave John O'Shea the role prior to the start of the 2013–14 season.

Internationally, Cattermole has represented England at under-16, under-17, under-18, under-19 and under-21 levels, but is yet to make his debut for the full international side.
