Full-back arrives from Atletico Madrid
Sunderland have signed Atletico Madrid right-back Javeier Manquillo on loan for the season.
The agreement has the option for the Black Cats to make the deal permanent next summer on a 4 year deal.
It was reported on Wednesday by Sky Sports that David Moyes is looking to bring in some new faces this summer before the window shuts, as he admitted at the weekend that Sunderland could be facing another relegation battle this season.
Manquillo spent the 2014/15 season on loan at Liverpool but failed to impress, making just 10 league appearances, and the Merseyside club opted to end the full-back’s two-year stay after just one year.
The right-back enjoyed a better campaign on loan at Marseille in Ligue 1 last season, making 31 league appearances, but Manquillo proved to be surplus to requirements at Atletico.
