Wahbi Khazri says he's really happy at Sunderland already

Wahbi Khazri has featured in Sunderland's last two matches.

Wahbi Khazri has told the Chronicle that he is very happy after completing a switch to Sunderland during the January transfer window.

The Tunisian international swapped Bordeaux for Wearside last month, and he has been thrown in at the deep end by Sam Allardyce.

Khazri has featured in Sunderland’s last two matches - against Liverpool and Manchester City - and he has impressed in both his appearances.

And the 25-year-old says that he is happy with his start to life at the Black Cats.

“It’s going very, very well,” the attacker said. “I am very happy, really. Today I am a very happy and satisfied man.”

Khazri has been brought to Sunderland to add creativity to Allardyce’s forward ranks, as the side look to avoid the drop.

As things stand the North East side are four points adrift of safety and in 19th place in standings.

“We know we are in trouble,” Khazri admitted. “But there is still fifteen matches. And when I see the matches we just dealt with - City and Liverpool - we made two good matches and I hope it leaves a lot of good things for the future.”

Khazri’s next match for Sunderland is likely to come this weekend, when Allardyce’s side take on Manchester United on Saturday.
