Sunderland wrap up the signing of Danny Graham from Swansea City for £5m.

Sunderland have completed the signing of Swansea City striker Danny Graham for a fee of £5m.

The two sides agreed a fee earlier today and now the transfer has been confirmed by both clubs, with the player signing a three-and-a-half-year deal.

"As soon as I heard about the interest from Sunderland I didn't even have to consider any of the other options that were on the table," he told Sunderland's official website.

"I was born and brought up in the North-East so I know first-hand the intense passion that people have for their football in this part of the world – it's special and there's nowhere else like it.

"It's up to me to show people I deserve to wear the Sunderland shirt and I'm excited about playing for a club as big as this."

Graham, who scored 15 league goals for Swansea since signing for them in 2011, is expected to go straight into Martin O'Neill's squad for the weekend trip to Reading.
