Emmanuel Eboue signs for Sunderland until the end of the season

Sunderland have signed former Arsenal defender Emmanuel Eboue on a short-term deal until the end of the season.

Eboue -- a free agent since being released by Turkish club Galatasary -- began training with Sunderland, currently one place and one point above the relegation zone, earlier this year.

The 32-year-old told the club's official website: "I was dreaming about returning to the Premier League. We have a good team, but we have to play hard. We will fight to move up the table.

"I've also known the club for a long time -- it is like a family here.

"I also thank the manager, who has given me a second chance, so I hope I can give my best for the club and also for him."

Last week, manager Sam Allardyce said the former Ivory Coast full-back had impressed and that he was hopeful of concluding a contract until the end of the season.

Allardyce said: "It would be wrong of me to turn down a player with such great experience of the Premier League, Champions League, international football, and not to think that he could play a part in our fight against relegation this season.

"He's a terrific guy -- a very, very good talker as well as a good player. Hopefully when the test comes, he is fit enough to cope."

Eboue signed for Arsenal in 2004 and was part of the side that reached the 2006 Champions League final.

He spent eight seasons with the Gunners before joining Galatasaray.
