Saha signs for Sunderland

This Is Wiltshire: NEW SIGNING: Louis Saha NEW SIGNING: Louis Saha

LOUIS Saha has joined Sunderland after signing a one-year deal at the Stadium of Light.

The 34-year-old Frenchman was a free agent, having been released by Tottenham at the end of last season.

He becomes Martin O'Neill's second signing of the summer, following fellow free agent Carlos Cuellar, and is expected to go straight into the squad for Saturday's Premier League trip to Arsenal.

O'Neill said: "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 joins a select band of players who have represented both Sunderland and Newcastle as he spent a season on loan with the Magpies in 1999.

Just the sort of multi million pound vibrant YOUNG striker that all of Weirdside has been longing for. 35 in a couple of months, he strutted his stuff at SJP back in 1999 - THIRTEEN years ago, surely the Mackems must be favourites for the drop if this and Carlos C are the limit of their summer spending spree. LOL, Darlo in five years time SMBs.
