Monday 16 June 2014
Sunderland have completed the signing of former Manchester City goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon.
Black Cats boss Gus Poyet swooped for the 27-year-old Romanian, whose contract was not renewed by City at the end of the season.
Pantilimon said: "It is a great privilege and honour to join a club like Sunderland.
"They have an amazing history and tradition and, of course, passionate fans.
"When I left Manchester City it was important that I chose a club with good ambition and a manager who has the hunger and desire to take the team forward.
"After speaking with the boss, I knew this was the right place and he was the right man. I can't wait to start."
