Sunderland new boy Sebastian Larsson has revealed how smooth-talking Steve Bruce persuaded him to reject a move to Arsenal and join the Black Cats.

The Dane decided against staying with Birmingham City following their relegation from the Premier League, and had numerous offers to consider.

However, Larsson says the reason for his move to Sunderland, is because of the persuasiveness of manager Bruce.


"I had other alternatives but it's great to sign with a club like Sunderland," he said.

"Steve Bruce showed he wanted me and that's important. Sunderland are building for the future."

Bruce is clearly keen to re-jig his squad this summer, with Keiren Westwood having completed his move from Coventry City, and South Korean forward Jo Dong-won also on the brink of joining.

The club are also still working on a deal to bring Wes Brown, John O'Shea and Darron Gibson to the club.
