Sunderland AFC have this evening terminated the contract of record-signing Didier Ndong.
You can read the full statement from the club below:
Sunderland AFC has given notice under its contract with Didier NDong.
The player, who was under contract with Sunderland AFC until June 2021, failed to return to Sunderland for pre-season training in July as scheduled, nor in the subsequent months that followed.
No reason was given for his failure to report and continued absence.
As a result, Sunderland AFC has accepted Didier NDong’s repudiatory breaches of contract and notice of the same has been provided to the player.
Sunderland AFC does so whilst retaining the right to pursue the player and any club he may subsequently join in relation to compensation for the value of the player.
