Sunderland left-back completes Denmark switch

Sunderland’s Bryan Oviedo has re-signed for FC Copenhagen.

The 29-year-old has penned a three-year deal for the Danish champions, as per a report by the BBC.

The likes of Rosenborg and Club Brugge have been linked with him in this transfer window but he has decided to move back to Denmark.

Oviedo made the move to the Stadium of Light in January 2017 from Everton when they were in the Premier League on a contract until 2020. He has stayed with them despite back-to-back relegation to League One.

He started his career at Saprissa in Costa Rica before Copenhagen brought him to Europe in 2010.

The defender became a key player for the Superliga side before he was snapped up by Everton in August 2012 for an undisclosed fee. Oviedo spent four-and-a-half seasons at Goodison Park and played 68 games for them in all competitions.

He has become a regular for Sunderland over the past few years and it was a surprise to see him stay for a full season in the third tier in the last campaign.

It was important for Jack Ross’ side to get him off the wage bill this summer despite him still having a year left on his deal. The North-East side can now balance the books and go again for promotion to the Championship this upcoming season.
