Sunderland have confirmed the signing of Italy international Emanuele Giaccherini from Juventus.
The versatile midfielder has put pen to paper on a four-year deal at the Stadium of Light.
Juventus have announced that the player has been sold for €7.5m.
The 28-year-old joined the Turin giants in 2011 from Cesena. Originally signed on a co-ownership for €3m, Juve paid a further €4.25m a year later to net him outright.
