Sunderland signs Argentina striker Ignacio Scocco
SUNDERLAND, England (AP) — Argentina striker Ignacio Scocco has completed his move to Sunderland from Brazilian club Internacional.
The 28-year-old Scocco has signed a 2 ½-year deal with Sunderland, becoming Gus Poyet’s fourth capture in the January transfer window.
Scocco’s compatriots Oscar Ustari and Santiago Vergini have already signed for the north-east England club, while Spanish fullback Marcos Alonso has joined on loan.
Scocco was in the stands at the Stadium of Light on Wednesday as Sunderland beat Stoke 1-0 to climb out of the Premier League relegation zone.
