Premier League strugglers Sunderland have completed the signing of Tunisia international Wahbi Khazri from French club Girondins Bordeaux for an undisclosed fee, the club said on Saturday.

No financial details were given but British media reported a fee of nine-million pounds ($12.89 million) had been agreed.

French-born Khazri, an attacking midfielder, is Bordeaux’s top scorer in the league this season with five goals.

Sunderland, second from bottom in the league, also signed Ivory Coast central defender Lamine Kone from FC Lorient this week.

During the transfer window the north-east club also recruited Senegal striker Dame N’Doye on loan from Turkey’s Trabzonspor and defender Jan Kirchhoff from Bayern Munich.
