Midfielder Yann M’Vila is on the verge of joining Sunderland, according to reports in France.

The French international is mooted to be in advanced talks with Sunderland and has been interacting with Black Cats fans on social media today.

Sunderland have been looking for an attack-minded midfielder this summer, with M’Vila more of an enforcer in the middle of the park.

But the 25-year-old is available, albeit his transfer status is complicated, with Russian club Rubin Kazan owning him, even though he has been training with Dynamo Moscow.
