Sunderland capture Marseille captain Cana

Sunderland have signed Olympique Marseille captain Lorik Cana for a fee of around five million pounds. "I'm delighted to have brought Lorik to the club, especially given the number of clubs who had expressed an interest in signing him," manager Steve Bruce told the club's official website. "He brings with him a tremendous amount of experience both at club level and internationally and is a great addition to our squad. "To captain a side of Marseille's stature says a lot about the player and his character, and I'm sure he'll go on to be a fantastic signing for Sunderland." The 25-year-old Albania midfielder has signed a four-year contract with Bruce's side after spending almost four seasons with the Ligue 1 team.
