We are delighted to announce the signing of goalkeeper Ben Alnwick from Sunderland - Marton Fulop moves in the opposite direction.The now 20-year-old broke onto the Stadium of Light scene during Sunderland's Championship winning campaign of 2004-05 before making seven Premiership appearances the following season - including an outing at White Hart Lane. He made a total of 22 first team appearances for the Black Cats.

Ben has been capped by England at Under-17, U18, and U19 level, receiving his first call-up to the Under-21 squad ahead of the August qualifier against Moldova.

Marton joined us from MTK Hungaria in May 2004 and subsequently enjoyed spells at Chesterfield and Coventry. The Hungarian international headed off to the Stadium of Light in November and his move now becomes a permanent one.

Sporting Director Damien Comolli said: “We are very pleased to bring another young and talented prospect to the Club. Ben may only be 20 years old but he has significant international and Premiership experience. Ben showed great motivation and desire to join us and I know he is excited to be part of our future.”
