MOTD runs the rule over Sunderland's new signing!

HOW DID THIS TRANSFER COME ABOUT?

Steve Bruce has been after Gyan for ages, and he made his move after selling Kenwyne Jones to Stoke. The deal took a while to complete, but Bruce finally got the job done yesterday – shelling out a club record £13 million in the process!

WHY HAVE SUNDERLAND SIGNED GYAN?

Forget the missed penalty against Uruguay – Gyan lit up the World Cup with his pace and skill, and he’s got the power to live with any Prem defender. With Gyan and Darren Bent up front, the Black Cats will have two cheetahs at the sharp end of their team!

WHAT DO WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT HIM?

He’s previously been linked with moves to Arsenal, AC Milan and Man. United. He also loves doing crazy dances when he scores, and he’s a successful rapper back in Ghana under the name Baby Jet!

MARTIAL! Wondergoal away at Fulham to keep Man. United's unbeaten run going!

MARCO SILVA! Had a mare against his old club Watford!
