Djilobodji vows to give all for Sunderland
Newly acquired Sunderland defender Papy Djilobodji has expressed his delight in joining Sunderland and has vowed to do his best as the Black Cats gear up for the new campaign.
The defender signed a four-year deal for Sunderland from Chelsea on Monday after successfully undergoing his medical for a fee of £8million.
Djilobodji, 27, agreed a £2.5million move to Stanford bridge last summer but was deemed surplus to requirements after playing a minute for the Blues.
He was farmed out to Bundesliga side Werder Bremen, where he fared well – scoring two goals in 14 apperances.
“I am so happy to have joined Sunderland, I believe we can do something good this season,” Djilobodji told the club’s official website.
“Sunderland Football Club is a big club with great fans and we will do our best to give the fans what they deserve. When the coach called me saying that he wanted to work with me I was so happy; it is done I am a Sunderland player.
“I will continue to give my best to improve.
“We need the fans, we need them for the whole season to work and to give them results, points and fight – I hope we will make them [the fans] happy,” he concluded.
