Papy Djilobodji and Didier Ndong have yet to appear for the team’s training sessions and the club is looking to pursue legal action

According to The Mirror, two players from League One team Sunderland could face legal action after failing to show for training.

Defender Papy Djilobodji and midfielder Didier Ndong have yet to appear for the team and the English club’s owner might not want them back.

Sunderland owner Jack Ross is looking for a way to make his almost £20 million back after both players disappeared during the off-season.

“I haven’t had any interest in them because they’ve never turned up and haven’t been part of what I’ve tried to build here, I don’t ever envisage them being part of that,” he said.

“However, that situation becomes more complicated if they come back in and it probably starts to extend beyond my remit as a manager but we’ll deal with that as and when.”
