The player is to join Eskisehirspor on a season-long loan, despite having only arrived from another Turkish side, Bursaspor, in a £3.8m deal in January.

"There was no problem with the coach," N'Diaye told the Sunderland Echo.

"We talked about my expectations because I need playing time. I'm at an age

where I need to play, so it was agreed to my loan and I chose Turkey.

"After the half-season I spent at Sunderland, starting on the bench was not

what I wanted.

"I am only 23, but you must play every week to progress. I could have stayed

at Sunderland, but I preferred the loan."

The move sees N'Diaye reunited with his former coach at Bursaspor, Ertugrul

Saglam, who is now in charge at Eskisehirspor.

N'Diaye, who made 15 league starts for Sunderland, added: "I had several offers, but it is this one in Turkey that gave me the most motivation.

"I know the coach, I spoke with him and he is counting on me for the upcoming season. This offer guaranteed me the most playing time."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
