  • The 32-year-old spent a season with Scottish club Hearts, before joining Sunderland in 2018.

  • McLaughlin made his international debut for Scotland in 2018. While he has just two caps, he is a regular in the squad.

“It’s a very proud moment for myself and for the family. It is great to be back up here in Scotland and we are very proud to have made the deal happen.”
