Sunderland midfielder Cristian Riveros has joined Turkish side

Kayserispor on loan.

The Paraguay international has agreed a 12-month loan deal at Kayserispor after struggling to establish himself at Sunderland.

Riveros, who joined the Black Cats on a free transfer from Mexican outfit Cruz Azul last summer, made only 14 appearances for the club last term.

Black Cats boss Steve Bruce was happy to sanction the loan deal as Riveros is well down the pecking order in his plans.

"Cristian wants to play regular football and hopefully he will be able to do so in Turkey. We wish him all the best," Bruce told the club's official website.
