Sunderland manager David Moyes has made Chelsea defender Papy Djilobodji his first signing in an £8million transfer.

The Senegal international, who can also play as a defensive midfielder, has signed a four-year contract at the Stadium of Light.

The 27-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at Werder Bremen, helping them to Bundesliga safety with an 88th-minute winner against Eintracht Frankfurt on the final day of the campaign.

Djilobodji began his career in Senegal with ASC Saloum before joining French club US Senart-Moissy in October 2009.

He joined Nantes in 2010 and went on to make 171 appearances, scoring nine goals across five years.

Djilobodji joined Chelsea last summer for a reported £2.7m, but his only appearance came as an 89th-minute substitute in a 4-1 Capital One Cup win at Walsall.

Former Everton midfielder Steven Pienaar is training with Sunderland in the hope of securing a contract under newly-appointed boss David Moyes.

Press Association Sport reports that the 34-year-old, who was released by the Toffees this summer, is keen to prove his fitness and a permanent deal could see him reunite with his former manager at Goodison Park.

Moyes signed Pienaar from Borussia Dortmund in 2008 and the South African would go on to score 25 goals in 230 appearances during two spells on Merseyside.

However, injuries severely disrupted the final 18 months of his time at Everton and the South African is now looking to rebuild his career.

The former Ajax and Tottenham midfielder could become the Black Cats first summer signing with former Aston Villa midfielder Charles N'Zogbia also on trial with the club.
