Sunderland have completed the transfer of Didier Ndong from Ligue 1 club FC Lorient.
Sunderland have announced that the fee is €16 million and that the Gabonese international has signed a 5 year contract with the northern club. Ndong started his career in Tunisia before before to Lorient, where he quickly established himself in the first XI back in 2015. Last term, he made 34 appearances in Ligue 1 notching up 2 goals from centre midfield. His stats in both tackles and interceptions mean that comparisons are being drawn logically to N'Golo Kante. However, Lorient's Vice-President has suggested he has great attacking potential and may be more like Michael Essien. His high rate of passing and accuracy suggest that he will be of use to David Moyes in counter attacks and controlling play, however he will have to curb his discipline. He was cautioned in 11 of 34 games last season and managed to get a red card already this season. He should take one of Pienaar, Gooch or Rodwell out of Sunderland's starting XI. Aug 31 - 11:15 AM
