Sunderland have completed the signing of David Healy from Premier League rivals Fulham.

The Northern Ireland international has inked a three-year deal at the Stadium of Light after passing a medical and agreeing personal terms.

Healy is Sunderland's second signing of the day following the arrival of Djibril Cisse and both players could go straight into the squad for this weekend's clash at Tottenham.

Black Cats boss Roy Keane was delighted to land Healy having played him during their time together at Manchester United.

"David will be a good signing for us," Keane told the club's official website.

Experience

"He has lots of experience at the top level and his international record is phenomenal

"He scored a few goals for Fulham last season, one of them was a well-taken strike against us at Craven Cottage, and he's another signing who will increase competition for places."

Healy admitted it was a 'privilege' to join Keane's ambitious Black Cats.

"I know Roy Keane from my Manchester United days and it's a privilege to join him at Sunderland," said Healy.

"I'm well aware of the passion of the Sunderland fans, having played at the Stadium of Light a few times, and I can't wait to get going. It's an exciting move for me."
