N'Diaye swaps Sunderland for Turkey

The 23-year-old made 16 appearances after joining from Bursaspor in January but has not impressed manager Paolo Di Canio and returns to the Turkish Super Lig for a year on loan
Sunderland have sent French midfielder Alfred N'Diaye to Eskisehirspor on a season-long loan deal.

The 23-year-old only joined the Black Cats in January, from Turkish Super Lig outfit Bursaspor, and he made 16 appearances in the second half of the season.

But he failed to make a significant impression on Sunderland manager Paolo Di Canio, who has signed midfielders Emanuele Giaccherini, Cabral, El-Hadji Ba and David Moberg-Karlsson in the close-season.

The Wearsiders confirmed the deal with a brief statement on their official website.

N'Diaye, a France youth international who has represented his country at Under-21s level on one occasion, will now link up with an Eskisehirspor side who finished eighth in the Super Lig last season.
