ALFRED N’DIAYE has completed his move to Spanish side Real Betis.
Sunderland agreed a fee with Betis earlier this month for N’Diaye, who was not part of Gus Poyet’s plans at the Stadium of Light.
As the Echo reported earlier this week, Betis had resurrected talks with N’Diaye’s agent after initial attempts to agree personal terms with the Senegal international had fallen through.
Those discussions went well and N’Diaye has now completed his return to Betis - where he spent the second half of last season on loan - for a fee which could rise to almost £3million, if the Spanish side return to La Liga.
“I always said I would not mind playing with Betis in the Second Division, but I am also convinced that it will only be a season,” said N’Diaye, who was at Sunderland for just six months before spending all of last year out on loan.
