Tottenham Hotspur defender Younes Kaboul has officially signed a contract with Sunderland, according to Sky Sports.
The deal will span over four years, but the financial details of Kaboul’s contract are still unknown.
Kaboul expressed his pleasure in signing his new contract.
“I’m delighted to be a Sunderland player and it’s an honour to join this club,” the defender said.
Sunderland manager Dick Advocaat also indicated how thrilled he is for the Black Cats’ newest signing.
“He (Kaboul) is a very experienced player, which is what we need. He has shown that in his time at Spurs and he will be a very good addition to our squad,” the Black Cats manager said.
Sunderland will be completing their fourth signing of this year’s transfer window.
This summer is crucial for them as they finished in 16th place in the Premier League standings.
The 29-year-old will look to receive more playing time at his new home, as he never made more than 13 appearances in the last three seasons for Spurs.
The Black Cats are hoping to improve their defense, which allowed 53 goals throughout the 2014-15 season.
Although he fell out of favor with Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino, Kaboul will look to make a fresh start with the Black Cats.
