Sebastian Larsson has committed his future to Sunderland by signing a new deal with the club until 2017.

In a statement on the club's website, Larsson said: "I’m delighted to have signed a new deal with the club. I’ve had talks with Gus and Lee Congerton and I feel that this is a club moving in the right direction and I want to be part of it.
