Sunderland midfielder Alfred N'Diaye appears on his way back to Turkey.

The Daily Mail says N'Diaye looks set to return to Turkey after pulling out of the club's trip to Asia.

The France midfielder, who became a father over the weekend, is understood to be in negotiations with Eskiehirspor.

N'Diaye, signed from Bursaspor by Martin O'Neill just six months ago in a £3.8million deal, has been told he can leave Wearside by manager Paolo Di Canio.
