Sunderland have confirmed the signing of Sebastian Coates from Liverpool on a four-year deal…
The 24-year-old centre back spent last season on loan at the Stadium of Light, making 13 appearances. That might not seem many but it is only four fewer than he made in his previous four years at Liverpool. The fee is thought to be in the region of £2 million. Coates will return for pre-season training late, after spending his summer playing Copa America. Born in Montevideo, Coates has 17 caps for Uruguay but has a Scottish father and surname. Although British commentators insist on pronouncing his name a South American sounding, ‘Ko-wah-tez’. His dad calls himself Peter Coates, as in ‘rain-coats’. It’s Sunderland’s first bit of business of the summer but unlikely to be the last, with Dutch Internationals Virgil van Dijk, Jeremain Lens and Leroy Fer all reported to be targets. Jul 1 - 4:37 PM
