Football: Sunderland sign France's Reveillere

LONDON (AFP) - Sunderland have signed former France international Anthony Reveillere for the remainder of the season, the English Premier League football club announced on Thursday.

The 34-year-old full-back has been training with the north-east club in recent weeks after becoming a free agent following his release by Italian side Napoli in pre-season.

Now he has been signed by Sunderland manager Gus Poyet and could go straight into the squad for Saturday's match at home to Arsenal, where Sunderland will look to recover from their 8-0 thrashing at Southampton last weekend.

Reveillere, capped 20 times by France, started his career at Rennes, but had his greatest success with Lyon, for whom he made almost 300 appearances and won five Ligue 1 titles.
