The Black Cats’ new striker, 25, made his Premier League debut at Swansea and marked it with two good finishes.

The Scot was delighted after slapping in a transfer request at Wolves to clinch a protracted switch.

Fletcher said: “It took a while for me to get the deal done but I am glad I am here.

“It has taken a bit of pressure off me getting the goals straightaway.

“But there’s no pressure from the money, it doesn’t bother me.”
