Sunderland have signed Northern Ireland international Conor McLaughlin on a two year deal following his release by Millwall.

The 27-year old joins after a two year stint with the London side, who he joined from Fleetwood Town in 2017.

Speaking about his latest recruit, Sunderland manager Jack Ross said:

I am delighted to be able to bring Conor to the club.

He brings quality and experience to a position that was of high priority for us to have options in. I look forward to working with him over the course of the season.
