Jozy overjoyed at Premier League return

Sunderland new boy Jozy Altidore cannot wait to return to the Barclays Premier League after sealing a move from AZ Alkmaar on a four-year deal.

The former Hull loanee said he was "excited" to earn a permanent place in the league:

Anybody who knows anything about football knows that the Barclays Premier League, when you look at everything as a full package, is the biggest league in the world.

I'm thrilled to be here and I'm looking forward to getting adjusted as quickly as possible.

It's a fantastic club, everyone here is so welcoming. I'm really excited about this season - it has everything here, all the combinations to be a big club, so I'm really excited to be a part of it.
