Turkish side make move for Sunderland flop Papy Djilobodji

Turkish side make move for Sunderland flop Papy Djilobodji

After back to back relegation campaigns, Sunderland were busy in the transfer market as Stewart Donald brought in 12 new players for Jack Ross to use this season.

Having dropped from the Premier League to League One in two years, Sunderland needed to bring in a fresh bunch of players to take the club forward back up the leagues.

Chief among those signings were Charlie Wyke from Bradford City and Luke O’Nien from Wycombe Wanderers, while the former hasn’t featured yet for his new club, Sunderland have made a solid start to the season.

The Black Cats currently sit fifth in the league but could well be ready to do some more business in the loan market before it closes.

According to Turkish outlet, Takvim, Turkish side, Trabzonspor have made a loan offer for Papy Djilobodji who’s valued at £4.95 million.

The Turkish side will face competition for his signature as according to the Sunderland Echo, Dijon are also interested in the defender.

The Breakdown

Ever since he joined the club, Djilobjodji’s career at Sunderland has been pretty poor and it looks like Chelsea conducted some great business when they sold him for £8 million.

The defender was sent out on loan to Dijon last year during Sunderland’s Championship season and doesn’t seem to be a part of Ross’ future plans as seen by the arrival of four new central defenders.

Ideally, Sunderland would’ve liked a transfer fee for the defender but at this point, a loan deal will have to do.
