Bruce Brings in Two

Sunderland have confirmed that Swedish International Seb Larsson and Ireland 'keeper Keiren Westwood will join the club on July 1st.

The two Bosman free transfers will come as a relief to SAFC fans growing anxious at the lack of signings so far this pre-season.

Larsson, 26, comes with bags of Premier League experience with Birmingham (157 apps, 18 goals) and can take a free kick. Something sorely missed recently at the club.

Goalkeeper, Westwood, also 26, finally makes the leap from the lower leagues having played for Carlisle and Coventry. A big test awaits as he looks to force his way past Craig Gordon and Simon Mignolet to grab the no 1 jersey. He was born in England but is an Irish International, playing several times in place of Shay Given.

The club will now look to tie up further deals before pre-season begins.
