Sunderland have completed the signing of Jordi Gomez on a free transfer, according to the Mirror.
The midfielder’s contract with Wigan Athletic expired at the end of last season, and he failed to agree a new contract with the club, who were knocked out of the Championship play-offs at the semi-final stage by eventual winners Queens Park Rangers.
In total, the 29 year old spent five seasons with the Latics, scoring twenty-six goals in one-hundred and fifty-five appearances in all competitions, and was part of the squad that won the FA Cup in 2013.
He becomes the Black Cats’ second new signing this week following the arrival of defender Billy Jones from West Bromwich Albion and comes days after manager Gus Poyet ended speculation surrounding his future by signing a new contract.
Sunderland are 9/2 to be relegated next season, after eventually avoiding the drop quite comfortably last time around.
