Cardiff City are being linked with a move for Sunderland midfielder Didier N’Dong, as per a report by the Watford Observer.

Sunderland are keen to offload N’Dong this summer to balance their books after their relegation to League One. He spent the latter part of this season on loan at Premier League side Watford but injuries meant he failed to make a single appearance for them.

N’Dong joined Sunderland in August 2016 from Ligue 1 side Lorient for around £13.6 million. However, despite being a first-team regular for the Black Cats in his first season there, he could not prevent them from being relegated from the Premier League.

He was linked with a move away from Sunderland last summer but stayed with them in the Championship. He played 21 games for the Black Cats earlier this season but moved away from the Stadium of Light in January to join Watford.

The 23-year-old started his career in Tunisia for CS Sfaxien and went onto play 48 games for them as a youngster. N’Dong signed for Lorient in January 2015 and became a key player for them in Ligue 1. He has also made 18 caps for the Gabon national team.

Cardiff City are in the hunt for some new signings this summer as they look to bolster their squad in preparation for their Premier League campaign next season. N’Dong is an option for them and Sunderland will be keen to offload him this summer.
