Sunderland have completed the signing of Republic of Ireland midfielder James McClean from Derry City for a fee of £350,000.
McClean, 22, has been capped by Northern Ireland at Under-21 level and was called up into the senior squad by Nigel Worthington before pulling out and announcing he wished to represent the Republic of Ireland instead.
The winger also featured in the select Airtricity League XI in the recent Dublin Super Cup alongside Celtic, Inter Milan and Manchester City and has become Steve Bruce's 10th summer signing.
