Sunderland yesterday confirmed the arrival of Senegalese striker Dame N’Doye.
The 30-year-old forward links up with the Black Cats on loan until the end of the season from Turkish side Trabzonspor. He has failed to score a single league goal this season for the Super Lig side, despite making 12 appearances.
For fans of English football, N’Doye is best known for his time with Hull City last season. He signed for the Tigers in January 2015, and although he scored five goals in 15 games, he could not keep the club in the Premier League.
N’Doye left Hull at the end of that season, but is now back in the English top flight looking to keep the Black Cats in the Premier League.
A Senegalese international, N’Doye has played 34 times for his country, scoring nine goals. His career has also seen him play for the likes of Panathinaikos, Kobenhaven and Lokomotiv Moscow.
When N’Doye was confirmed as a Sunderland player, fans of the Wearside club took to Twitter to react to his signing, with a generally positive outlook on the effect he can have at the Stadium of Light.
@YoungSunEcho Some people saying N'Doye a good signing!What like Benjani? Ill give him my support and hope I'm wrong but a very poor signing— JeebazSandals (@JeebazSandals) January 14, 2016
Delighted Dame N'Doye has signed for Sunderland good player will score goals I was very impressed with him at Hull last season #SAFC— joshua bunting (@Distillerymad) January 14, 2016
N'Doye perhaps not the 'sexy' signing that other clubs down there are looking at, but 5 in 15 last season for Hull is good going #SAFC— Chris Young (@YoungSunEcho) January 14, 2016
A think N'doye will turn out a good season could be wrong hope am reet— Tone (@tone87zeb) January 14, 2016
I thought N'Doye did alright for Hull. Doesn't sound like he's had a good season but if Big Sam wants him I think we should trust him.— Scott (@ScottDuffman) January 14, 2016
N'Doye on loan and Kirchcoff two good signings, another centre half and a bit of consistency and I think we might have a chance of survival— Craig Duncan (@CI2AiGx) January 14, 2016
Dame N'Doye at Sunderland... Yeah, remember Jozy Altidore? Good luck with that one.— Matthew Rudd (@MatthewJRudd) January 14, 2016
