The 26-year-old joins Tony Mowbray's side on a free transfer after his contract with Ipswich Town expired at the end of last season. He's now signed a three-year deal at the Riverside.
Chester-le-Street born Leadbitter began his career with the Black Cats and made 123 appearances for the club before moving to Ipswich in September 2009.
