Stubbs Moves On

Last updated : 02 August 2005 By Matt Bottom
Former Bolton centre-back Alan Stubbs has signed for Sunderland in a one year deal following his release from Everton this summer.

"Alan is a vastly-experienced centre-back who played nearly 40 games in the top flight last season for a team that qualified for the Champions League," said Sunderland boss Mick McCarthy.

"A player of his proven quality will be a great asset to us. He has leadership skills and being an older head, will have that calming influence on the younger squad members thatís so important."
