Fans flock to meet Graham, N'Diaye and Mangane.

Sunderland fans scored a half-term hat-trick yesterday as the club’s three January signings made an appearance at the Stadium of Light store on Thursday afternoon.

Danny Graham, Kader Mangane and Alfred N’Diaye signed autographs galore at a special session attended by hundreds of supporters.

Those in attendance queued patiently to meet the trio, who happily chatted, signed merchandise and posed for pictures.

It was the new boys’ first chance to meet the fans, with £5m signing Graham describing the event as a valuable opportunity.

“It was good to meet the fans and sign a few things for them,” the striker said.

“I was quite surprised by the turn-out! To have so many people here was great and we were more than happy to see them.”
