IRELAND INTERNATIONAL MARC Wilson has joined team-mates John O’Shea, Darron Gibson and Aiden McGeady at Sunderland after sealing a move to the club before the transfer window shut.

The defender arrives at the Stadium of Light on a permanent deal until the end of the season from Bournemouth.

Wilson’s time at the Vitality Stadium was short lived and he leaves having made just three appearances for the Cherries.

The 30-year-old spent the second half of last season out on loan at West Brom but drops back down to the Championship after signing with Sunderland.

He links up with three of his international team-mates and will bolster Simon Grayson’s defensive resources as the Black Cats look to come straight back up following relegation from the top-flight last season.

Wilson was one of three Deadline Day signings announced by Sunderland, with Callum McManamam and Jonny Williams also coming in.
