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."
