Sunderland have completed the £6million signing of Southampton striker Kenwyne Jones, according to the south-coast club.

The 22-year-old Trinidad & Tobago international effectively went on strike last week after declaring he no longer wanted to play for the Coca-Cola Championship side.

Derby were also linked with Jones but Sunderland were given permission to speak to the player and, according to Southampton, have now completed the transfer.
