Poom makes loan switch to Arsenal
Mart Poom
Arsenal have signed Sunderland's Estonian international goalkeeper Mart Poom on loan.

The 33-year-old has joined the Gunners initially until the end of the year, but the deal could be extended until the end of the season.

He has not played since October when he suffered a knee injury and has now seen his first-team place taken by summer signing Kelvin Davis.

Poom joined from Derby in 2003, making 68 appearances for the Black Cats.

He was a firm favourite with the Sunderland fans, helped when he scored an injury-time equaliser against the Rams in September 2003.

Poom, who has won over 100 caps for his country, will provide some experienced cover for regular Gunners keeper Jens Lehmann.
