Sunderland have completed the signing of Italy international midfielder Emanuele Giaccherini from Juventus for 7.5 million euros (£6.5 million).

The 28-year-old has agreed a four-year deal at the Stadium of Light and becomes Paolo Di Canio's eighth summer signing, following the capture of David Moberg Karlsson, Valentin Roberge, Cabral, Modibo Diakite, Vito Mannone, Jozy Altidore and El-Hadji Ba.

Giaccherini began his career with Cesena in 2004, before moving to Juventus in 2011 and made 40 appearances for the Serie A champions. He also has 14 international caps and recently represented his country during last month's Confederations Cup in Brazil.
