TweetSebastian Larsson has completed his expected move to Sunderland where he teams up once again with ex-boss Steve Bruce.
Larsson was signed by Bruce for Birmingham from Arsenal in January 2007 following a successful loan spell.
‘I have worked with the manager before and that obviously made the decision easier, but mainly it feels like it is a huge club and it feels like a great challenge for me,’ the 26-year-old Larsson told SAFC TV.
‘I want to take the next step in my career and I really feel I can do that coming to Sunderland.’
Bruce added: ‘Seb was a fantastic young player for me at Birmingham and he has matured into a very good midfielder.
‘He has been courted by a number of top clubs over the summer – both in England and across Europe?so we are naturally delighted that he has chosen to come to Sunderland.’
