The 34-year-old former Fulham, Everton and Manchester United striker has endured a series of injuries since joining the Black Cats last summer.

The former France international has been restricted to just two starts for the first-team, and 14 appearances in total in all competitions.

Saha's release was confirmed shortly after the club completed the signing of Danny Graham from Swansea.

Sunderland chief executive Margaret Byrne said in a statement: "We wish Louis all the very best for the future and thank him for his contribution to Sunderland."

Saha later tweeted: "I can now officially say that SunderlandAfc and I find a mutual agreement to terminate my contract. I want to thank fans, players and staff."

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
