Sunderland boss O'Neill happy to take Saha gamble

Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill has secured Louis Saha to a one-year contract.

The Frenchman, 34, was released by Tottenham in the summer and Black Cats boss Martin O'Neill has swooped to give Connor Wickham, Ji-Dong Won and Fraizer Campbell some much-needed competition.

O'Neill said: "Louis is a striker whose abilities have been proven at the very highest level and he brings with him a raft of experience of top-flight football.

"I'm sure he will be a great addition to our squad in an area we recognise needs strengthening and I'm delighted we have been able to complete the deal ahead of our first game of the season."
