Sunderland have been linked with ex-Hull City frontman Dame N’Doye, as Sam Allardyce searches for striking recruits in the January transfer window.
The Black Cats are understood to be considering a host of options up front, with a centre-forward now Allardyce’s priority in the market after the capture of defender Jan Kirchhoff this week.
Reports in Turkey have claimed that N’Doye could be on his way to the Stadium of Light in a loan deal until the end of the season.
The Senegal international joined Hull last January and netted five goals in 15 appearances, before the Tigers were ultimately relegated.
N’Doye joined Trabzonspor in a £2.2million deal during the summer, but the 30-year-old has failed to find the net for the Turkish side in 12 appearances.
