DONE DEAL: N’Doye joins Sunderland on loan
Premier League side Sunderland have signed Senegal striker Dame N’Doye on loan from Trabzonspor for the rest of the season.
N’Doye, 30, has Premier League experience having played for Hull last season, scoring five goals in 15 appearances. N’Doye joined Hull from Lokomotiv Moscow in last January’s transfer window but moved to the Turkish club Trabzonspor in August after Steve Bruce’s team were relegated.
The striker left the KC Stadium for Turkish side Trabzonspor after the Tigers were relegated to the Championship at the end of last season, but has managed only one goal there this term.
Sunderland’s manager, Sam Allardyce, told his club’s website: “Dame will bring something different to our forward options. Having already played in the Premier League, he should have no problems in hitting the ground running, too, which is very important at this stage of the season.”
N’Doye, who will wear the No10 shirt for Sunderland, has been a regular for Senegal since making his debut in 2010 and played in last year’s Africa Cup of Nations.
He will will not be available for Saturday’s trip to Tottenham because formalities pertaining to his work visa still need to be completed.
