Sunderland have signed Liverpool center-back Sebastian Coates on a season-long loan.
The defender is far back in the pecking order at Liverpool as Dejan Lovren's arrival has pushed everyone back a place at the position. The defender missed most of last season with a torn ACL and despite being Uruguay's World Cup squad, he hasn't been in a single match-day squad for Liverpool this season. It's unknown how much playing time Coates will get at Sunderland so approach with caution. Sep 1 - 2:03 PM

Out-of-favour defender Sebastian Coates has torn the cruciate ligament in his knee and is out for "most of the season".

The injury scuppers any chance of the player leaving the club. Liverpool will either have to increase their search for a new center back, or be comfortable with Martin Skrtel, himself out of favour, as fourth option behind Daniel Agger, Kolo Toure, and Andre Wisdom.

Sebastian Coates injured his knee in training, and it appears to be a serious injury.

Coates was touted as one for the future at Liverpool, but after failing to convince it has seemed like his future lay away from the club. This injury could scupper any chance he would have at a transfer.
