Sunderland offload Riveros to Kayserispor

Have your say

SUNDERLAND midfielder Cristian Riveros has agreed a season-long loan with Turkish outfit Kayserispor.

The Paraguayan joined Sunderland on a free transfer last summer but struggled to hold down a place in the starting XI.

Riveros started just five top flight games and after the arrival of fellow midfielder Craig Gardner at the Stadium of Light, Black Cats boss Steve Bruce has looked to offload the 28-year-old.

Bruce said: “Cristian wants to play regular football and hopefully he will be able to do so in Turkey. We wish him all the best.”
