Papy Djilobodji tells Sunderland he will not come back

The ongoing saga at Sunderland is continuing to develop as each day passes and shocking claims have been made.

According to TalkSport, Papy Djilobodji has told the club that he would not be seen in Sunderland ever again, with Stewart Donald confirming the news.

The club’s owner has stated that the Senegalese defender has made his position clear that he will not be returning to the club, despite making an appearance at training last week.

Didier Ndong is another player that wants to leave the Stadium of Light permanently and has no intention of returning, although the club’s owner currently has no idea where he is at the moment.

Speaking to Jim White on TalkSport, Donald said: “But the bottom line is, Didier Ndong has shown no interest in returning to the football club whatsoever – we don’t even know where he is.

“Papy has returned but in his last conversation said ‘you’ll never see me in Sunderland again’.

“So I don’t think either of the two players wants to be here anyway.”

The Verdict:

It should not really come as a surprise to hear that Djilobodji has no plans on returning to the Black Cats.

It is believed there was some interest in the defender, however, a deal was failed to be struck and the former Chelsea man remains a Sunderland player for the time being.

The Stadium of Light outfit will be looking to resolve the situation fairly quickly, as Donald and Jack Ross will be concerned that it could have a negative effect on their squad, who have started their League One campaign in good form.
