London: Sunderland on Wednesday announced the signing of Italian goalkeeper Vito Mannone from Premier League rivals Arsenal.

The 25-year-old, a former Italy under-21 international, has signed a two-year contract at the Stadium of Light and cost Sunderland an undisclosed transfer fee reported to be around £2 million ($3.1 million, 2.4 million euros).

Sunderland sold first-choice goalkeeper Simon Mignolet to Liverpool in a £9 million deal last month.
