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."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
