Sunderland have broken their transfer record to sign Lorient midfielder Didier Ndong on a five-year deal.

The Black Cats have paid £13.6million to land the Gabon international, beating the £13million they splashed on Asamoah Gyan.

Speaking to the club’s official website, the 22-year-old said: “I am very proud and happy to sign for Sunderland. This is a new adventure for me and to play in the Premier League is a dream come true.

“Maybe the Sunderland fans don’t know me yet, but I promise that they will quickly discover that I will give everything for them and the club.

“It will be an honour to wear the Sunderland shirt and I will wear it with a true understanding of what it means.

“I am excited to meet everyone at the club, to see the stadium and of course the fans, who I have heard so many good things about. Today is the most beautiful day of my life.”
