Sunderland get Davenport on loan

Calum Davenport
Davenport joins ex-Hammers Ferdinand and McCartney at Sunderland

Sunderland managed to beat the transfer deadline to capture West Ham defender Calum Davenport on loan until the end of the season.

The 26-year-old passed a medical on Wearside before becoming manager Ricky Sbragia's second signing during the transfer window.

He follows Tal Ben Haim's loan switch from Manchester City on Sunday.

Former England Under-21 international Davenport cost the Hammers 3m when he joined from Spurs in 2007.

He will be reunited with fellow former West Ham defenders Anton Ferdinand and George McCartney at the Stadium of Light.

The pair moved to Wearside during the summer transfer window.

Davenport, who started his career at Coventry and has also had loan spells at Southampton and Norwich, had fallen down the pecking order at Upton Park after the arrival of manager Gianfranco Zola.

He made just eight appearances for the club this season and 14 in total during his two years at the club.
