New Sunderland signing Pascal Chimbonda is convinced they'll finish in the top ten this season.

The former Tottenham fullback told the Sunday Sun: "The manager has brought in some good quality players this summer, such as El-Hadji Diouf and Steed Malbranque - and me!

"We need to take it game by game, try to win our home matches and if we do that then we can take the club on to the next level.

"There is a great set-up here and if we play well as a team then I think good things will happen."
