Lamine Knone.

The quartet have revealed they want to leave the Black Cats this summer after the club were relegated to League One.

On Ndong, he said: “There is interest from four or five clubs and they are all very close to the valuation.

“There’s been an increase in interest in Oviedo. Brugges expressed an interest but I don’t think they can afford him.

"There’s a German club and a French club who have shown an interest now.

“Kone, there’s interest in but not at our valuation. With Djilobodji, it’s quite quiet.

“I don’t think we’ll see them in a Sunderland shirt again so it becomes a financial transaction.”

Djilobodji and Ndong have refused to return to training, and as such the club has stopped paying their wages. Kone is back at the Academy of Light, but is training away from the first team while Oviedo is due back on Wearside next week after his World Cup exertions with Costa Rica.
