N'Diaye free to play for Cats

Alfred N'Diaye is available for Sunderland's Premier League clash with West Ham on Saturday after receiving his international clearance.

The 22-year-old former Bursaspor midfielder joined the club in a 4million switch on Wednesday, but was still waiting for the final documentation to be lodged with the Premier League on Friday afternoon.

However, the Black Cats have now confirmed the clearance has been received.

A statement said: "Sunderland AFC have confirmed that the club has received international clearance for new signing Alfred N'Diaye. N'Diaye joined the Black Cats earlier this week and is now available for team selection."
