The 28-year-old Sweden international, whose existing deal was due to expire at the end of this month, has committed his future to the Black Cats until the summer of 2017.

Larsson said: "I'm delighted to have signed a new deal with the club. I've had talks with [manager] Gus [Poyet] and [sporting director] Lee Congerton and I feel that this is a club moving in the right direction and I want to be part of it."
