Lazio’s Diakite joins Sunderland

Sunderland last night confirmed the capture of Modibo Diakite on a free transfer from Italian club Lazio.

The English outfit swooped after Napoli opted against signing the centre-back on a Bosman, despite agreeing personal terms.

Diakite, who played just one game for the capital side in 2012-13 after refusing to sign a new deal, was also of interest to Fiorentina.

Sunderland are bossed by former Lazio, Milan and Juventus winger Paolo Di Canio.
