Cats pounce for Edwards

02 Jan 2007 - 18:27:08

Sunderland have completed a busy opening to the transfer window by landing Luton Town winger Carlos Edwards in a £1.5million deal.

The Trinidad & Tobago international has agreed a three-and-a-half year contract at the Stadium of Light.

The capture of Edwards follows hard on the heels of the arrival of Marton Fulop on a permanent transfer from Tottenham with Ben Alnwick heading in the opposite direction plus the exit of Liam Lawrence to Championship rivals Stoke City.

Edwards, 28, represented Trinidad & Tobago during last summer's World Cup and will team up with international colleague Dwight Yorke on Wearside.

"We're absolutely delighted to have captured such a sought after, top player," Sunderland boss Roy Keane told the club's official website.

"A lot of clubs have been interested in Carlos, so it's great that he will be here at Sunderland to play his part in getting this club back to the Premiership."
