New Sunderland signing David Moberg Karlsson admits he's known about his move for three weeks.

Sunderland swooped for the IFK Goteborg winger yesterday in a shock smash-and-grab deal.

"Per (Jonsson, Moberg Karlsson's agent) called me about three weeks ago, I got a bit of a shock," the 19-year-old told Sportbladet.

"PL is one of the world's best leagues - no hesitation - there are not many people who get such a chance. I've known that clubs had an eye on me, and that Per would never joke about such a thing.

"They believe in me for the future, they like fast technical players, that is what they are see in me."
