Sunderland striker Louis Saha admits he has been impressed with fellow frontman Steven Fletcher's early impact at the club.

Fletcher, who joined for £12million from Wolves last month, claimed his first goals for the club in last weekend's 2-2 draw at Swansea.

And Saha, who arrived on Wearside on a one-year contract earlier in the summer, is expecting to see much more from the 25-year-old.

"I feel respect for [Steven]. I am not surprised at all [with his start]," noted Saha

"This is just Steven's first few games and I think we can expect even more from him.

"That is a good prospect. I don't think this is the last time we will be talking about him."
