Fulham complete signing of 3m defender

Fulham have beaten Sunderland to the signature of Southampton defender Chris Baird.

The Saints had refused an earlier bid from The Cottagers but when they accepted a bid of £3m from Sunderland Fulham were able to jump in and beat it by 25,000.

As Baird obviously wanted to work with his old Northern Irland boss and his wife wanted to stay in the South a move The Cottagers was a matter of formality.

This is Lawrie Sanchez's second defensive signing.
