BOLO Zenden signed off with Sunderland in style, scoring the opening goal in a win that helped the Black Cats finish above neighbours Newcastle in the Barclays Premier League.

Zenden's mistimed header sailed over Robert Green in what was the veteran midfielder's final match before quitting Wearside.

Stephane Sessegnon's 20-yard effort and Cristian Riveros' stoppage-time third sealed the victory in the second half against the relegated Hammers.

Newcastle squandered a 3-0 lead at home to West Brom, meaning Sunderland jumped above them into the top half of the table - the club’s highest top-flight finish in a decade.
