Sunderland have landed Ghana World Cup star Asamoah Gyan on a four-year deal for a club-record fee.
Steve Bruce has splashed out at least £13million to buy the striker from French outfit Rennes.
A club statement confirmed the deal was done 20 minutes before the 6pm deadline to sign the player, who scored three goals in South Africa this summer.
