Scocco seals Sunderland switch

Argentina international striker Ignacio Scocco has completed his move to Sunderland.

The 28-year-old has joined the club from Internacional for an undisclosed fee and has signed a two-and-a-half-year-deal.

He becomes Gus Poyet's fourth acquisition this month following Spanish full-back Marcos Alonso's arrival on loan and the captures of Scocco's compatriots Oscar Ustari and Santiago Vergini.

Scocco was in the stands at the Stadium of Light as the Black Cats beat Stoke 1-0 to climb out of the Barclays Premier League relegation zone.
