Sunderland let N'Diaye leave on loan

Sunderland midfielder Alfred N'Diaye has joined Turkish side Eskisehirspor on a season-long loan.

N'Diaye, 23, has made 16 appearances for Sunderland since his arrival from another Turkish club, Bursaspor, in a £3.8 million deal in January.

The France youth international's move continues the changes being made by manager Paolo Di Canio at the Stadium of Light, after he succeeded Martin O'Neill at the helm.

The Italian has made nine new signings this summer and allowed six players to leave permanently while Danny Graham, and now N'Diaye, have moved out on loan.
