Sunderland have completed the signing of former Arsenal defender Emmanuel Eboue on a deal until the end of the season.
The 32-year-old right-back, who has been without a club since being released from Galatasaray last summer, began training with the Black Cats in February.
Last Thursday, Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce confirmed the club had offered Eboue a short-term deal to remain at the Stadium of Light and that has now been signed.
Eboue will now compete with DeAndre Yedlin and Billy Jones for the right-back position and could make his Sunderland debut in the Tyne-Wear derby against Newcastle at St James' Park on March 20.
Sunderland sit in 17th place in the Premier League table, just one point above the relegation zone with nine matches of the season remaining.
