Oster signs contract at Burnley
John Oster in action for Sunderland
Burnley have signed winger John Oster, who recently left Sunderland.

The 26-year-old, who worked with Steve Cotterill at Sunderland, has signed a contract to stay at Turf Moor until the end of the season.

The Wales international started at Grimsby, was sold to Everton for 1.5m in 1997, who in turn sold him to Sunderland for 1m, two years later.

He was on loan at Leeds earlier this season but was sent back to Sunderland after an off-the-field incident.

Sunderland held their own investigation into the incident and subsequently cancelled his contract.
