Black Cats swoop for Kader Mangane.

Sunderland AFC have completed the signing of Senegal international Kader Mangane on loan until the end of the season.

The 29-year old arrives on Wearside from Saudi club Al Hilal, whom he joined last year.

The 6’5” defender becomes Martin O’Neill’s second January signing, following the arrival French under 21 international Alfred N’Diaye last week.

The Sunderland manager said: “Kader is player who will add to the overall strength of our squad and give us options. He will improve competition for places and we are delighted to welcome him to the club.”

Mangane began his career in his native Senegal before spending six years in Switzerland. He played for Lens and Rennes in the French Ligue One before moving to Saudi Arabia in 2012.
