OFFICIAL: Sunderland Sign John Mensah From Lyon On Season-Long Loan

john mensah Sunderland have today announced that they have completed the signing of highly-rated centre-back John Mensah on a season-long loan from Olympique Lonnais.

The Black Cats have an option to make the deal permanent next summer, should the move prove to be a success for the 26-year-old, known as the ‘Rock of Gibralter’ in his homeland because of his strength and solidity.

Capped 60-times by his homeland, the defender has enjoyed a well-travelled career after starting with MBC Accra.

Versatile, the player can function in midfield as well as defence, and joins Fraizer Campbell, Paulo Da Silva, Lorik Cana, Darren Bent and Lee Cattermole on Wearside as Steve Bruce’s sixth signing of a busy summer for the Black Cats.
