Six-pack for Keane
01 Sep 2006 - 10:31:46
New Sunderland boss Roy Keane dramatically reshaped his squad on deadline day by bringing in six new players.
The arrival of his former Manchester United team-mate Dwight Yorke from Australian champions Sydney FC for £200,000 was the highest profile deal, but not the most expensive.
That honour went to the £1.4million signing of Republic of Ireland striker David Connolly from Wigan Athletic.
The Black Cats could end up paying a further £500,000 for the 29-year-old, depending on appearances and the club winning promotion.
Connolly's Wigan and international team-mate Graham Kavanagh, 32, has also moved to Wearside, signing a three-year deal after the clubs agreed a £500,000 fee.
Another Republic of Ireland international to join Sunderland is Liam Miller, 25, who has signed a three-year contract after Manchester United agreed to let him leave on a free transfer.
As well as picking up his former international colleagues, Keane also brought in his ex-Celtic team-mates Ross Wallace and Stanislav Varga.
Midfielder Wallace, 21 and centre-back Varga, 33, arrived in a deal which could eventually be worth £1.1million.
