Sunderland have secured the signing of Hull City defender Michael Turner for an undisclosed fee.
The 25-year-old centre-back has agreed a four-year deal with the Black Cats and becomes the club’s seventh signing of the summer.
Turner’s future has been the subject of conjecture of late, with Liverpool linked with an interest.

Michael Turner has been linked with moves to Liverpool, Tottenham, Everton and Aston Villa but has now completed his move to Steve Bruce’s Sunderland. Phil Brown had made strong hints in recent weeks that he felt he was fighting a losing battle to keep the centre back.
The 25 year old is on the verge of an England call up and was valued by Hull City at £12m, a fee that scared off Rafa Benitez but perhaps was met by the Black Cats?
