Emirates Stadium keeper moves to the Stadium of Light for an undisclosed fee.
Sunderland have today officially confirmed they have signed Arsenal keeper Vito Mannone.
The 25 year old moves to the Stadium of Light just days after Paolo Di Canio lost first choice keeper Simon Mignolet to Liverpool and Mannone will battle Keiren Westwood for the Black Cats starting spot.
Mannone has signed a two year deal with the Stadium of Light side and follows Monday’s triple signing of Cabral, Valentin Roberge and Modibo Diakite.
The former Italian Under 21 international made a total of 15 appearances for the Gunners since moving to the North London side in 2005.
Mannone has also spent time out on loan at Barnsley and Hull City.
