Al-Muhammadi: Signs for Sunderland

Sky Bet

Skysports.com understands that Sunderland have completed the signing of Egypt international right-back Ahmed Al-Muhammadi.

The fee is believed to be in the region of £2million for the 22-year-old who helped Egypt win the African Cup of Nations on Sunday.

No sooner had Al-Muhammadi played his part in Sunday's 1-0 win over Ghana in the final of the tournament had he signed for Sunderland.

The Black Cats have been searching for defensive reinforcements throughout the month having conceded 11 times in their last three outings.

Bruce knows all about Al-Muhammadi having been impressed with him while on trial with the North East side last August.

While Sunderland were unable to agree a fee with ENPPI Club back then, they have reached an accord this time around.

It remains to be seen what length of deal the Egyptian ace has signed at the Stadium of Light with more details expected to emerge on Monday.
