English Premier League side Sunderland on Friday signed Albanian international Lorik Cana from French giants Marseille on a four-year contract in a deal worth more than five million pounds.

The midfielder is Sunderland boss Steve Bruce’s third signing of the summer following the arrivals of Paraguay skipper Paulo Da Silva and England Under-21 striker Fraizer Campbell.

Bruce told the club’s official website, www.safc.com: “I’m delighted to have brought Lorik to the club, especially given the number of clubs who had expressed an interest in signing him.”

The 26-year-old Cana has 31 caps for Albania and helped Marseille to second place behind Bordeaux in the French title race last season.

“He brings with him a tremendous amount of experience both at club level and internationally and is a great addition to our squad,” added Bruce.

“To captain a side of Marseille’s stature says a lot about the player and his character, and I’m sure he’ll go on to be a fantastic signing for Sunderland.”
