Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill has completed his second deadline-day swoop with the signing of defender Sotirios Kyrgiakos on loan for the remainder of the season.
The 32-year-old former Liverpool man, who is currently with German side Wolfsburg, followed Manchester City full-back Wayne Bridge into the Stadium of Light.
O'Neill said: "Sotirios offers a real physical presence, coupled with a wealth of experience, which will be an undoubted benefit to us in the next few months. I'm delighted to welcome him to the club and I'm sure he is looking forward to the challenge of returning to the Premier League."
