Aiden O’Brien has signed a two-year contract with Sunderland.
Millwall released the attacker at the end of the 2019-20 season and he has quickly lined up his next challenge at Phil Parkinson’s League One side.
O’Brien told Sunderland’s website: “It feels terrific to be a Sunderland player. This is a massive club and I just can’t wait to get going.
“I love scoring goals, it’s what I live for and hopefully I can bring plenty to the team. I can’t express how excited I am, and I can’t wait to show the fans and my team-mates what I’m made of.”
Parkinson said: “I’m really pleased with the signing of Aiden.

“He’s at a good age, he has experience of winning this division and he has played plenty of Championship football.
“Aiden can also play in a variety of attacking roles, which I feel is important for us. We are delighted to welcome him to the club and we are looking forward to working with him.”
