Welbeck signs for Sunderland

SUNDERLAND, August 13 – Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck joined Sunderland on a season-long loan, it was announced Thursday.Sunderland boss Steve Bruce, the former United centre-half, was delighted to have secured the services of the 19-year-old Welbeck.

"He’s a young man but he’ll fit into our squad fantastically well."

Welbeck arrived on Wearside the day after striker Kenwyne Jones left the club to join Premier League rivals Stoke.

"It would be unfair to say that he (Welbeck) is the replacement for Kenwyne," added Bruce. "There’s still a couple of weeks to go in the market and hopefully the money is there to go and spend it."

Bruce said he would be interested in Wales forward Craig Bellamy, who appears to be out of favour at Manchester City, although he could be out of the Black Cats’ price range.

Bruce said: "There’s a lot of clubs who would love Craig Bellamy. He’s an individual and he’s a fantastic player but whether it’s possible, I’m not quite sure.

"I’ve been a big admirer of Craig’s for a long, long time. If he’s available, which it looks like he is, and if we could afford him, then I would love to bring Craig to the football club."
