EPL: Club sacks ex-Chelsea defender

Djilobodji has been sacked

Djilobodji, who joined Sunderland from Chelsea on a four-year contract for a fee of about £8 million in 2016, was given unpaid leave in July to secure a move away from the club on the understanding that he would return to training in August if he failed to do so.

The 29-year-old Senegal global, who was on loan at Dijon last season, put in a transfer request in June.

What that would, in turn, leave them with is Sunderland terminating their contracts, thus, making them free agents and in position to negotiate higher wages at their new clubs. Djilobodji, who was under contract to SAFC until June 2020, indicated in June 2018 that he wished to leave the club.

His spell in Germany went to plan, so much so that David Moyes' Sunderland chose to fork out £8m to sign him on a permanent deal from Chelsea in August 2016.

With his counterpart already sacked, Ndong - who had retrieved poolside pictures posted on Instagram last week and remains unavailable to contact - will learn of Sunderland's decision sooner rather than later.

Despite several written instructions for him to resume training, the 29-year-old ignored the requests and when he did finally did appear at the Academy of Light, on Sept 5, Sunderland claimed he was in no shape to play or train with the first team.

Didier Ndong will sure soon learn of his fate at Sunderland with Senegal defender Papy Djilobodji sacked by the club after committing a quite similar offence.

The club said he "comprehensively" failed a fitness test upon his return.

The statement added that Sunderland "can confirm that it has accepted Papy Djilobodji's repudiatory breaches of contract and notice of the same has been provided to the player".

And after returning to Sunderland a month later than expected, he then failed a standard fitness test.

Ndong turned down a prospective £6.6m move to Torino in June because the Italian club could not meet his wage demands. "Didier Ndong has shown no interest in returning to the football club whatsoever - we don't even know where he is".

"The question is whether they've done enough in breach of their contracts [for us] to terminate their contracts and pursue them for wilfully devaluing themselves", said Donald on Tuesday.

Neither player nor their representatives were contactable.
