Charlton Athletic sign El-Hadji Ba from Sunderland
Charlton Athletic have signed 22-year-old French midfielder El-Hadji Ba from Sunderland.
Ba has signed a three-year deal at The Valley after managing just three appearances for the Black Cats since arriving two years ago.
The 22-year-old scored on his Sunderland debut in an FA Cup clash against Carlisle but spent last year on loan at Bastia.
"It's very nice to be a Charlton player," Ba told Charlton's official website.
"I'm very happy to be here. It was a little bit difficult at Sunderland. I was young and didn't have a lot of time on the pitch, but now I am older and ready to fight at Charlton."
