Sunderland bolster defence
Talal El Karkouri
El Karkouri has played sporadically for PSG this season
Sunderland have signed Moroccan defender Talal El Karkouri on loan from Paris St Germain until the end of the season.

Black Cats boss Howard Wilkinson has been hit by a spate of injuries and recently admitted that he had only 16 fit players.

The 26-year-old could make his debut against Charlton on Saturday.

"He's a player who has been well schooled in France and has become a regular in the PSG team this season.

"He's also gained experience of the Uefa Cup during his three-year stay," Wilkinson said.

"He's strong in the air and obviously having played in France has good technical ability.

"He will hopefully make a very useful addition to our squad between now and the end of the season."

"I had two possible targets this week and am pleased to have at least secured the services of one of them."
