Kone pens new Sunderland deal

Sunderland defender Lamine Kone has signed a new five-year deal with the club, according to the Mail Online.

The centre-back was strongly linked with a move to Everton in the summer though a deal never materialised with the Toffees bringing in Ashley Williams from Swansea City instead.

The Ivory Coast international was keen on sealing a move to Goodison Park but has now committed himself to the North East club until the end of the 2020/21 campaign.

Kone only signed for the Black Cats last summer and has racked up just seventeen appearances for the club in all competitions scoring two goals.

Internationally he has been capped six times for his country having represented the country of his birth, France, at youth levels.

Sunderland were thumped three-nil by Everton on Monday evening leaving them second from bottom of the division with just one point ahead of Sunday’s trip to Tottenham Hotspur.
