Papy Djilobodji.

The move has been welcomed by most Sunderland fans, who are keen to see the back of the former Chelsea defender.

Here's how supporters reacted on social media.

@JD_Lovatt: Wondering whether #SAFC will take the same action with Ndong and sack him. Two big differences though: 1. They have proof that Djilobodji is unfit and therefore devalued, and 2. Ndong is worth a lot more

@waldron1994: Hopefully Ndong will be next out the door. #SAFC

@Seventy3Fanzine: To anyone still under the distorted impression that David Moyes is a good manager, I have two words for you: Papy Djilobodji. Nice one Dave

@BarryBr72940301: Average player at best. Who does he think he is ?

@JamieSAFC_: After this he'll never find a club to play for again.

@L0ZZYL: Wonder what N’Dong is thinking......... #SAFC

@timhardinguk: Well done @SunderlandAFC - hold them to account !

@JWHendry46: Good riddance to another one of Moyes' super signings. #SAFC

@HodgeSAFC: Big move by #SAFC in the era of player power.

@xW1LKS: Cya Diji, won't take long to forget you! #SAFC
