Sunderland striker Connor Wickham has signed a new four-and-a-half-year deal.
Wickham was in the final season of the four-year contract he signed on his arrival from Ipswich for £8.1m in June 2011 and had been linked to moves to West Ham and Newcastle back in the summer, but this deal ends all speculation. The 21-year-old was key to Sunderland's survival last season and has scored three times this campaign, establishing himself as a regular first team player. "I think it was very important to tie down a young English centre forward as there are not many around," said Black Cars boss Gus Poyet. "This shows clearly the way this football club wants to progress." Dec 10 - 6:35 AM
