Finnish midfield battler Teemu Tainio has left us to join Sunderland.
The Finnish international, 28, has penned a three-year contract and is Roy Keane's first summer signing.
"Teemu has showed versatility, playing in different midfield positions for both Tottenham and his previous club, Auxerre," said Black Cats boss Keane.
"But his experience in particular and the fact he has played more than 40 international games shows he has a lot to offer Sunderland."
Keane is also interested in adding three more Spurs players to his squad.
Steed Malbranque, Younes Kaboul and Pascal Chimbonda have all spoken to the former Manchester United captain after a fee for all players was agreed with the Club.
Tainio joined us in 2005 and played in 83 League and Cup matches in his three seasons at White Hart Lane.

Good luck Teemu and thanks for the memories
