Ola Toivonen Sunderland Loan Deal- Swedish star joins Wearsiders

Sunderland have completed the signing of Swedish star Ola Toivonen on a season long loan from Stade Rennais. The move re-unites Toivonen, who can play both as an attacking midfielder and a a striker, with Sunderland boss Dick Advocaat, who coached the former when he was at PSV Eindhoven.

Advocaat has publicly hit out at Sunderland’s transfer spending in recent years, saying that “crazy spending” on “lower than adverage” players has left him handicapped in the current transfer window.
