Sunderland have completed the signing of striker Dame N’Doye on loan from Turkish club Trabzonspor.
The 30-year-old Senegalese international, who had a productive six month spell in the Premier League with Hull City last season, will stay with the Black Cats until the end of the current campaign and wear the number 10 shirt.
“Dame will bring something different to our forward options,” said Black Cats boss Sam Allardyce.
“Having already played in the Premier League he should have no problems in hitting the ground running too, which is very important at this stage of the season.”
N’Doye is Sunderland’s second capture of the transfer window following on from the arrival of central defender Jan Kirchhoff from Bayern Munich.
However, he will be unable to make his debut at Tottenham on Saturday as he completes formalities pertaining to his work permit.
