Black Cats Sign Stubbs

Last updated : 02 August 2005 By Sam
The 33-year-old centre-back, who was released by Everton at the end of last season, has signed for the Black Cats on a one year deal with the option of a further one year after that.

"Alan is a vastly experienced centre-back who played nearly 40 games in the top-flight last season for a team that qualified for the Champions League," manager Mick McCarthy told the clubs official website.

"A player of his proven quality will be a great asset to us. He has leadership skills and being an older head, will have that calming influence on the younger squad members that's so important.

"You need characters like that around the place and I'm thrilled that we've been able to bring him here."
