Sunderland set cut-price for Papy Djilobodji

Sunderland set cut-price for Papy Djilobodji

Sunderland are thought to be doing everything they can to offload one of their biggest earners at the Stadium of Light this summer.

And, according to a report by Bild, Papy Djilobodji is believed to be allowed to leave the Black Cats for a fee of just £1million.

The defender, who is thought to have cost them around £8m to sign from Chelsea two years ago, via Transfermarkt, is believed to be one of the highest earners at the club and Jack Ross is obviously keen to clear him off the wage bill.

The 29-year-old is thought to have refused to play for Sunderland following their relegation to League One and is keen on leaving the north-east.

It is understood that Hannover could offer him a route out of the Stadium of Light, but it remains to be seen if the Bundesliga will look to take Djilobodji on a cut-price deal.

The Verdict:

It is pretty clear that Sunderland are keen on offloading their £4.95m-rated enforcer, as per Transfermarkt, especially if they are happy to accept an offer of around £1m.

The defender has made it clear he does not want to remain with the Black Cats and Ross has not yet involved him within his first-team.

Should the 29-year-old complete a move to Hannover, the Mackems will be pleased to see him go and will look to shift Didier Ndong before Friday’s deadline.
