New signing Yann M’Vila is glad to have fulfilled his dream of moving to the Premier League after completing his Sunderland switch.

M’Vila was today unveiled by Sunderland after the French international agreed a season-long loan deal with the Black Cats, with a view to a permanent move next summer.

The 25-year-old becomes Sunderland’s fifth signing of the summer and should be eligible for this weekend’s Premier League opener at Leicester City.

“I’m very happy to be a Sunderland player,” he said.

“I had a very good feeling training with the team, every player welcomed me and the feeling was very good with them so I’m excited for the start of the season.

“I’ve also wanted to play in the Premier League for a long time so I’m very happy to be here.”
