Sebastian Coates has left Sunderland after agreeing a permanent switch to Sporting Lisbon.

Uruguayan defender Coates has been on loan in Portugal for more than a year and Lisbon have decided to take advantage of their option to make the deal a permanent one.

Coates, 26, made 32 appearances for Sunderland in his two spells spread over three years.

Muy contento por haber llegado a un acuerdo y firmar por 5 años en el club!! 💪🏻⚽️
