Sunderland snap up Saha

16 August 2012 17:16

Sunderland have completed the signing of France striker Louis Saha on a one-year-deal following his release by Tottenham Hotspur.

The 34-year-old becomes Sunderland's second signing of the close-season following Carlos Cuellar's move from Aston Villa.

Saha joined his team-mates in training on Thursday and is expected to make his debut in Sunderland's English Premier League opener at Arsenal on Saturday.

Sunderland manager Martin O'Neill is delighted to have signed the former Everton and Manchester United striker and feels he will bring a wealth of experience to the club.

O'Neill told the club's website: "Louis is a striker whose abilities have been proven at the very highest level and he brings with him a raft of experience of top-flight football.

"I'm sure he will be a great addition to our squad in an area we recognise needs strengthening and I'm delighted we have been able to complete the deal ahead of our first game of the season."

Saha said he is hoping he can help his new side achieve more success than their 13th-place finish last season.

"This is a great opportunity; I'm really pleased with the chance to play for such a great club," he said.

"I'm delighted and obviously I'm looking forward to start playing for the team.

"The club has very passionate fans, they really look to help the team and there are many things to achieve. So I'm delighted with the choice and the opportunity to play for such a great football club.

"Martin O'Neill has great experience and done great since taking over as manager. It's a great chance to play under him and I hope to help the side to achieve something."
