Selling Papy Djilobodji is good news for Sunderland’s promotion campaign

Sunderland have got their league campaign off to a solid start this season.

Although some fans will be unhappy with the side’s draw with Luton yesterday, four points from a possible six is a solid start for Jack Ross’ men.

After two seasons of relegation, the Black Cats had to get their campaign off to a good start and that is exactly what they’ve done.

Moreover, new owner Stewart Donald has backed his manager with a raft of new signings, the pick of them being former Wycombe Wanderers man, Luke O’Nien and former Bradford City striker, Charlie Wyke.

The club have also managed to shift some of the deadwood from the squad, and according to French newspaper, L’Equipe, Papy Djilobodji is attracting interest from Ligue 1 side, Caen.

Although the English transfer window is closed, French clubs have until the end of the month to complete their business.

The Breakdown

Sunderland brought in four new defenders this summer as the club look to fix a leaky that conceded a terrible, 80 goals last season.

To clear up their wage bill, the Black Cats have already sold Lamine Kone who like Djilobodji, joined the club during their Premier League days.

Since Djilobodji joined the club, he’s never really impressed although he had some good performances for Dijon last season.

As Sunderland begin their new era, the club needs to clear out players who suffered the trauma of their relegations and bring in players that will push the side further on.

What do you think Sunderland fans?
