Sunderland made their first capture of 2013, signing former Bursaspor midfielder Alfred N'Diaye for 3.6m.

The 22 year-old Frenchman signed a three-and-a-half year contract with the Black Cats after completing his much-anticipated move to Wearside.

Formerly of French Ligue 1 side Nancy, N'Diaye moved to Bursaspor in 2011 after three years with the French club.

In Turkey N'Diaye made 48 starts, scoring three goals in two seasons before Martin O'Neill was prompted to part with a fee believed to be 3.6m.

A former France U17, U19, U20 and current U21 international, N'Diaye spoke of his delight at signing for the Black Cats to safc.com:

"I am very happy to sign for Sunderland and get the chance to play in the Premier League; it was my dream when I was young and I`m so happy to be here.

"I watch the Barclays Premier League all of the time. I looked at Sunderland many times - it`s the best league in the world.'

N'Diaye continued:

"Everybody tells me Sunderland fans are crazy, fanatical fans, and with Saturday`s game at home, I hope it is possible to play and experience that passion!'

Contracted until June 30 2016
