Sunderland have signed former defender George McCartney on a five-year deal.
McCartney had been chased by the Black Cats all summer, but the West Ham and Northern Ireland player initially rejected a return to the Stadium of Light.
However, Keane's persistence has finally paid off and McCartney arrived on Wearside today for a medical.
The 27-year-old left Sunderland for West Ham in 2006 as part of a swap deal with Clive Clarke and he quickly established himself in East London.
McCartney recently signed a new deal at Upton Park.
