black cats bag Benjani
Zimbabwe striker Benjani Mwaruwari joined Sunderland from Manchester City on loan until the end of the season after the Premier League rubber-stamped the deal yesterday that was held up on transfer deadline day. The signing of the 31-year-old is a relief for Sunderland manager Steve Bruce whose side have tumbled to 13th in the league after a bright start.
"He's a big, strong, powerful centre-forward and one we've been tracking for a long time," said Bruce. "I'm delighted we've been able to bring him to the club, he'll bring another dimension to our striking options."
