In a brief statement, Sunderland said: ‘Following the conclusion of his recent suspension, Darron Gibson will leave Sunderland AFC by mutual consent.’

Former Manchester United midfielder Gibson joined the club from Everton in January 2017 as David Moyes turned to tried and tested players in an attempt to rebuild his squad.

However, injuries – he was recovering from a groin injury at the time of the drink driving allegation – and a lack of form limited him to just 30 appearances.
