Sunderland defender Coates remains with Sporting Lisbon

Sunderland defender Sebastian Coates has had his loan spell with Sporting Lisbon extended until the end of 2016-17 season.

The 25-year-old joined the Portuguese club in January, and he has managed 13 appearances for them as they chase the Primeira Liga title.

Sporting confirmed the deal in a statement: "We have reached agreement with Sunderland and Sebastian Coates to extend the loan until the end of season 2016-2017."

Coates joined the Black Cats from Liverpool in the summer of 2014 but struggled for regular game time in his first 18 months on Wearside and was subsequently sent to Lisbon in the winter.
