Sunderland AFC has confirmed that defender Modibo Diakite has left the club by mutual consent.
Diakite was one of the many signings from Paolo Di Canio's ill-fated reign in 2013, but the defender never got close to securing a spot in the Sunderland first team. He was sent on loan to Serie A side Fiorentina for much of last season and was never in Gus Poyet's plans for the current campaign, so the player has been released from his contract.

French defender Modibo Diakite has been sent on loan from Sunderland to Serie A side Fiorentina for the remainder of the season.

Diakite arrived to Sunderland in the summer from Lazio and made seven starts for the Black Cats, but is not a preferred center back when John O'Shea and Wes Brown are healthy, so this will be a welcome opportunity for Diakite to get more playing time. He will be entering an exciting situation where Fiorentina are battling for the final Champion's League spot in Serie A.
