Giaccherini completes Sunderland switch

Emanuele Giaccherini has completed a move from Italian champions Juventus to English Premier League side Sunderland, it was announced Thursday.

Giaccherini rarely featured for Juventus last season but was a member of Italy's squad at the 2013 Confederations Cup, where he scored twice.

The 28-year-old will link-up with fellow Italian, Paolo Di Canio, the manager of Sunderland.
