After getting the defender they wanted in the transfer window, the Black Cats have shipped out Sebastian Coates to Sporting Lisbon on loan for the remainder of the season.
The move comes less than 24 hours after signing Lorient defender Lamine Kone to a four-year contract. The move for Kone came as a surprise to many after the two clubs agreed to a transfer before Sunderland pulled out of the deal earlier this month. But after returning for the Ivorian defender, Coates flew to Lisbon for a medical before confirming the move today. The former Liverpool defender just signed a four-year contract with Sunderland this summer, but has not started for the club in a Premier League match in the new year with Wes Brown and John O'Shea preferred.
