JOZY Altidore has become Sunderland’s sixth summer signing after finalising his move to the Stadium of Light.

The American international has linked up with Sunderland at their Italian pre-season training camp after penning a four-year deal with the Black Cats for an undisclosed fee.

Altidore was at the Academy of Light yesterday to hold discussions and undergo a medical with the Black Cats after a fee thought to be in excess of £6m was agreed with Dutch club AZ Alkmaar on Friday.

And after finalising a deal with Sunderland, the former Hull City loanee’s return to the Premier League has been confirmed after netting 31 goals for Alkmaar last season.
