Sunderland sign Swansea striker Danny Graham
3:04pm Thursday 31st January 2013 in Sport
SUNDERLAND have confirmed the £5m signing of Danny Graham from Swansea on a three-and-a-half-year deal.
His initial task will be to persuade those supporters who jeered his introduction during the second half of Tuesday night's 0-0 draw at the Stadium of Light that his Newcastle roots and affections will be no bar to success on Wearside.
Graham said: "Of course, I totally understand that some fans might need convincing about my commitment to Sunderland because of my roots, but I've always given 100 per cent no matter what team I play for and no matter who I play against.
"It's up to me to show people I deserve to wear the Sunderland shirt, and I'm excited about playing for a club as big as this.
"I'm really excited about the future - this is a new phase of my career and I can't wait to get started."
