Chimbona arrived to Stadium of Light...

Pascal Chimbonda has completed his move from Tottenham Hotspurs to Sunderland called as "Black Cats". Chimbonda signed 4 year deal. Sunderland manager Roy Keane was delighted by bringing him to Stadium of Light and he is going to debut against Liverpool.

After the signing Keane explored that Chimbonda is rare defender who can play anywhere across the backline. Before signing to Sunderland he played for two English clubs like Wigan Athletic and Tottenham Hotspurs. He is 29 years old French defender and played only 1 international match for France. More commonly he plays at Right Back. In his first ever Premiership season he voted as the Best Right Back in English Premier League in 2005-06 ahead of Gary Neville, Steve Finnan and Paulo Ferrira. After one season with Wigan he was sold to Tottenham for 4.5 million Pounds.
