Sunderland have completed the signing of right-back DeAndre Yedlin on loan from Tottenham for the rest of the season.
Sky Sports reported earlier this summer that Spurs had made the USA international defender available for a season-long loan to continue his development.
Norwich previously expressed an interest in Yedlin, who signed for Tottenham last summer from Seattle Sounders but was unable to complete the move until January because of issues over a work permit.
The 22-year-old has made just one substitute appearance towards the end of last season and has not been involved in any of the first-team's match-day squads this season.
But he featured five times for the USA at the Concacaf Gold Cup this summer.
Yedlin began his career at Seattle and made 45 appearances for them in MLS, scoring once.
After joining Sunderland, he said: "I'm delighted to be given the opportunity to play for a club with such great history. I've heard fantastic things about Sunderland and the supporters from Claudio Reyna and Jozy Altidore.
"Claudio speaks very highly of Dick Advocaat from his time at Rangers."
