Sunderland's new midfielder, Adam johnson, has been given a place in the England squad that will play World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and the Ukraine.

Johnson joined the club in a deal thought to be worth around £10 million from Premier League title holders Manchester City.

He made his debut for the Black Cats in their 2-0 win over Morecambe in the Capital One Cup at the Stadium of Light on Tuesday (28th August).

Meanwhile, striker Stephane Sessegnon's signed a new deal with the club that will see him stay at the Stadium of Light until 2015.

The former Paris Saint Germain star arrived on Wearside 18 months ago where he became an instant hit with Black Cats fans.

The Benin International was named as the club's official Player of the Season last year where he was Sunderland's top goal scorer.

The contract extension is naturally subject to the player also being granted an extension to his current work permit.
