Sunderland have signed defender Papy Djilobodji from Chelsea for £8m.

The 27-year-old Senegal international becomes new manager David Moyes' first signing, agreeing a four-year-deal at the Stadium of Light.

Djilobodji joined Chelsea last summer for £4m, but only made one appearance before spending the second half of last season on loan at Werder Bremen.

The centre-back, who has won 12 caps for his country, spent five years with Nantes before his move to England.
