Salut! Sunderland offers its customary welcome: ha’way Didier Ndong, the Gabon Mackem

A very rushed posting but a very warm bienvenue to Sunderland’s latest francophone recruit, the Gabon international Didier Ndong from Lorient, for a fee of 16 millions euros, however many pounds that converts to post-Brexit.

Safc.com tells us he has joined on a five-year deal as David Moyes’s seventh arrival of the summer. That he came from the same club as Lamine Kone does not mean he’ll be demanding a transfer or new contract by Christmas.

Here is that the official site says:

‘… the 22-year-old arrives on Wearside having made 46 appearances for the Ligue 1 team since joining them in January 2015.

‘I am very proud and happy to sign for Sunderland,’ he said. ‘This is a new adventure for me and to play in the Premier League is a dream come true.

‘Maybe the Sunderland fans don’t know me yet, but I promise that they will quickly discover that I will give everything for them and the club. It will be an honour to wear the Sunderland shirt and I will wear it with a true understanding of what it means.

“I am excited to meet everyone at the club, to see the stadium and of course the fans, who I have heard so many good things about. Today is the most beautiful day of my life.’

  1. Did we get a keeper? There must be many half decent keepers who would jump at the chance. What happened with M’Vila did we leave him stranded? The others seems good signings Densyer will be a top player, Ndong sounds like a player we have needed for a long time really hope it works out.

  2. Everton bidding for Newcastle’s Sissoko, so hopefully Kone stays. This guy, is young and hungry. I expect he will be a decent signing, and a target for other teams in years to come. Hope so at least.

  3. “It will be an honour to wear the Sunderland shirt and I will wear it with a true understanding of what it means… and until such time as a better offer comes along.”
    No one wonder it’s the happiest day of his life, he just broke the Sunderland spending record. But… is he worth it?
