Former Tottenham defender Pascal Chimbonda is delighted with his move to Sunderland.

He told SAFC TV: "It's a good challenge for me and I hope this season will be good.

"I know Sunderland have a good manager and when I came here I saw the training ground and I think it's a good place for me.

"It didn't come as a surprise to me because apart from Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool, every club is the same, nobody is bigger.

"Sunderland have good players and hopefully I can play football and enjoy the fans, and everyone is happy!

"The aim is to stay in the Premier League, but I know the manager wants to progress, play football and win games, and hopefully that will happen."
