Saha joined his team-mates in training on Thursday and is expected to make his debut in Martin O’Neill’s side’s Premier League opener against Arsenal on Saturday.

The Sunderland boss is delighted to have signed the former Arsenal and Manchester United striker and feels he will bring a wealth of experience to the club.

O’Neill told the club’s official website: “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.”
