Sunderland have completed the permanent signing of Kazenga LuaLua on a short-term deal.
The 27-year-old winger joins from Premier League side Brighton & Hove Albion on a contract until the end of the 2017-18 season.
LuaLua began his career with Newcastle United before loan spells with Doncaster Rovers and Brighton.
He joined the south-coast club permanently in 2011, making over 100 appearances before two separate loan spells with Queens Park Rangers in the last year.
Speaking about the signing, Sunderland manager Chris Coleman said: “Kaz was determined to come here and get playing first-team football again and I look forward to helping him play the kind of football he is capable of.
“He’s quick, skillful and has a lot of experience at this level. He gives us another option in attack and, most importantly, is up for the fight.”
