Sunderland have confirmed the signing of Jason Denayer from Manchester City on a season-long loan.
Sunderland have been searching high and low for new defensive additions on deadline day and they have now managed to complete a temporary one-year switch for Denayer.
The Belgium international, who is the eighth new arrival at the Stadium of Light this summer, is yet to make a first team appearance for the Citizens since joining as a youth player in 2013.
He will be hoping to prove his worth to the Black Cats and ensure David Moyes, who succeeded Sam Allardyce, can guide the club away from the bottom three after a poor start to the season.
Denayer brings Champions League experience gained over the last two seasons, firstly with Celtic FC in the 2014-15 season and then during last year’s campaign with Galatasaray, where he won the Turkish Cup.
The 21-year-old was crowned the PFA Young Player of the Year for the Bhoys, after helping the Scottish giants to a league and cup double while he has also won eight caps for the national team.
