Black Cats snare Roberge

Maritimo defender Valentin Roberge has completed his move to Sunderland.

The 25-year-old Frenchman became the latest man to join Paolo Di Canio's Wearside revolution after his contract with the Madeira club expired.

Roberge, who has signed a three-year deal, played in both Maritimo's Europa League group games against the Black Cats' derby rivals Newcastle last season.
