Stadium of Light welcomes Old Trafford stalwart.

Sunderland have completed the £1million transfer of manchester United defender Wes Brown on a four-year deal.

The 31-year-old has ended his 15-year relationship with the Old Trafford club and has become Black Cats boss Steve Bruce’s seventh summer signing.

Brown made 361 appearances for United winning five Premier League medals that earned him 23 England caps before announcing his retirement from the international game last summer.

Sunderland had a joint bid of more than £12million for Brown, Darron Gibson and John O’Shea accepted last month,with latter completing his medical on Wearside today.

Bruce’s has already signed Ahmed Elmohamady, Connor Wickham, Craig Gardner, Ji Dong-won, Keiren Westwood and Sebastian Larsson this summer.

It is unlikely to be the last with O’Shea and Blackpool midfielder David Vaughan also understood to be close to agreeing deals.

“We are delighted to welcome a player of Wes’ ability, experience and character to the club,” Bruce said.

“He has been a fantastic professional for Manchester United through the years and not only will he strengthen our defensive options, he will also bring with him a winning mentality and level of maturity which can only be positive for the players around him.”
