Tainio Signs for Sunderland

Tainio Signs for Sunderland

Sunderland have finally broke their duck in the transfer market after signing Teemu Tainio from Spurs. Tainio is the first of the much-rumoured quartet to join from Spurs with Pascal Chimbonda expected to be the next to join the Blackcats.

Teemu Tainio who signed for an undisclosed fee is a current Finish International who can play anywhere across midfield. The 28 year old has signed a three-year deal at the Stadium of Light much to the delight of manager Roy Keane.

Keane told the clubs official site "I am delighted to sign a player of Teemu`s experience and quality, he`ll be a valuable addition to our squad."

"Teemu has showed versatility, playing in different midfield positions for both Tottenham and his previous club, Auxerre."

"But his experience in particular and the fact he has played more than 40 international games shows he has a lot to offer Sunderland."

Vital Sunderland Says

Great news just when I was starting to get worried. He will be a great addition to the squad.
