Striker signs four-year contract at Stadium of Light
Sunderland have completed the signing of striker Steven Fletcher from Wolves on a four-year deal.
The Black Cats have been chasing Fletcher all summer and finally agreed a fee in the region of £12million for the Scot after seeing several earlier bids rejected.
Fletcher, who had handed in a transfer request at Molineux, has agreed personal terms and finalised his move to the Stadium of Light.
The 25-year-old will go straight into the squad for Saturday's home clash with Reading.
Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill was delighted to bring in the former Burnley man to bolster his attacking options.
"It has been no secret that we needed to strengthen our attacking options and Steven has a proven track record of scoring goals," O'Neill told the club's official website.
"He is young and constantly improving and he will be a very welcome addition to the squad. I'm delighted that we've been able to bring him to Sunderland."
Fletcher is the second high-profile depature from Wolves this week following Matt Jarvis' switch to West Ham.
