It is said that Black Cats boss Gus Poyet swooped for the 27-year-old Romanian, whose contract was not renewed by City at the end of the season.

Pantilimon said: “It is a great privilege and honour to join a club like Sunderland.

“They have an amazing history and tradition and, of course, passionate fans.

“When I left Manchester City it was important that I chose a club with good ambition and a manager who has the hunger and desire to take the team forward.

“After speaking with the boss, I knew this was the right place and he was the right man. I can’t wait to start.”

The 6 ft 8 in goalkeeper was also linked with a move to Arsenal and West Ham United.
