Cisse and Jones to stay strike partners.
Kenwyne Jones has put an end to rumours that he was about to leave the club by signing a new four and a half year deal for Sunderland.

Rumours of Aston Villa, Chelsea watching his progress and the constant media hounding with Harry RedKnapp's Spurs, linking the striker to a move away from the Stadium of Light.

But now the Sunderland faithful can breathe a sigh of relief, as the star striker is going nowhere.

Kenwyne had this to say, "I've been here for a year and a half now and I'm liking the place so there's nothing stopping me from committing my future here and thankfully today that happened."

"I'd like to thank the club and the fans for putting their support behind me."
