ALFRED N’DIAYE has sealed his loan move to Real Betis and could make a permanent switch to La Liga’s bottom club.
N’Diaye joined Eskisehirspor on a season-long loan last summer, but the Turkish side decided to bring a premature end to his stay earlier this week.
The 23-year-old has been in discussions with Betis and the Spanish side have now taken over the terms of his loan, with a view to making the deal a permanent one at the end of the season.
N’Diaye said: “Before I came, I knew this was a great club and yesterday when I was doing the medical, I was impressed with the facilities.
“Although the situation at the moment is delicate, Real Betis is a first-rate club and I want to help them back to where they belong.”
Sunderland boss Gus Poyet had considered recalling N’Diaye from his loan spell at Turkey during the January window, but opted against it.
And even if Betis decide not to sign N’Diaye permanently, the chances are that Sunderland will look to offload him in the summer.
The Senegal international has made just 16 appearances for the Black Cats since arriving in a £3.8million move from Turkish side Bursaspor last January.
