Etuhu has signed a four-year deal at the Stadium of Light after completing a medical on Tuesday morning.

Sunderland boss Roy Keane said he was delighted to secure the services of the former Preston man.

"I'm very pleased that Dickson has signed. He will add competition to our squad and give us a real physical presence. He's a big, strong player who can also get a goal."

Etuhu moved to Sunderland after turning down an improved contract offer at Carrow Road last week.

"We received an offer from Sunderland for Dickson on Saturday evening which meets a £1.5m buy-out clause in his contract,” said Norwich chief executive Neil Doncaster.
