Addicks Miss Out On Arsenal Striker

Last updated : 08 January 2007 By Sam
The Addicks had looked favourites to sign the 18-year-old forward but he has instead signed a three-and-a-half-year deal at Sunderland for a £2million fee.

"It's brilliant to be here. It's been hectic, sorting things out, and now I'm looking forward to training and playing," he told the official Sunderland website.

I spoke to the boss, Roy Keane, about everything, he told me his hopes for the club and it helped me make up my mind.

"I'm excited about the move to Sunderland."
