Former Sunderland defender Papy Djilobodji has completed his short-term move to Ligue 1 strugglers Guingamp. The 30-year-old has penned a deal until the end of the season after seeing his contract at Sunderland terminated in September.
Djilobodji has been quoted as saying he wants to help Guingamp, who are bottom of the table and seven points from safety, “stay in Ligue 1 at the end of the season” as he returns to the French top flight following previous spells at Dijon and Nantes.

Djilobodji’s time with the Black Cats did not go well as he made just 24 appearances over a two-year period and he was allowed to move on when he made it clear he did not want to play in the third tier in England this season.
He will team up with former Sunderland team-mate Didier Ndong at Guingamp after the Gabon international made the move to the Stade du Roudourou last week.
