Sunderland Agree Fee To Sell Stephane Sessegnon To Qatar Club Less Than 48 Hours After Arrest

Stephane Sessegnon Sunderland Agree Fee To Sell Stephane Sessegnon To Qatar Club Less Than 48 Hours After Arrest

Less than 48 hours after being arrested and charged with drunken driving, Sunderland forward Stephane Sessegnon looks set to move to Qatari club Al-Jaish after the two clubs agreed a fee of around £5million, according to Sky Tyne & Wear.

While Sunderland played MK Dons Tuesday night at the Stadium of Light in the League Cup, Sessegnon was arrested and charged with drunken driving after being stopped by police in Newcastle.

Sessegnon still has to agree personal terms with Al-Jaish, but it looks likely that the Beninese footballer is on his way out of Sunderland.
