Eboue set for Sunderland deal

Sunderland are closing in on the free transfer of ex-Arsenal defender Emmanuel Eboue, according to Sky Sports.

The thirty-two year old began training with the North East club last month and has done enough to persuade the Black Cats to offer him a contract until the end of the season as they look to beat the drop.

He is now set to compete with fellow right-backs DeAndre Yedlin, Billy Jones and Adam Matthews for a place in Sam Allardyce’s side.

Eboue has most recently been plying his trade with Galatasaray, racking up just over one hundred appearances for the Turkish Super Lig side in all competitions, scoring five goals though his last game was almost two years ago.

During his time with Arsenal, he played two hundred and fourteen times, scoring ten times and started the 2006 Champions League final defeat to Barcelona while he also picked up two runners-up medals in the League Cup.
