Midfielder becomes PDC's seventh summer acquisition.

Sunderland AFC have confirmed that French starlet El Hadji Ba has joined the club.

The France Under-20 international has agreed a three-year deal on Wearside after his contract with French side Le Havre expired last month.

The midfielder becomes the seventh player to arrive at the Stadium of Light this summer and has joined Head Coach Paolo Di Canio and his new team mates at their training base in Italy.

A product of Le Havre’s youth set-up, Ba broke into the first team set-up at the beginning of 2012 and has gone on to make 12 league appearances for the French outfit this season.
