Lamine Kone agrees new Sunderland deal

Lamine Kone is ready to settle at Sunderland.

The Sunderland Echo says fresh reports in France claim Kone has agreed to extend his contract with Sunderland, with the Ivory Coast international said to have agreed an improved contract offer to remain with the Black Cats until 2021.

The Black Cats managed to hold on to star defender Kone this summer despite fierce interest from Premier League rivals Everton.

The Toffees made a bid of £18million for Kone earlier in the summer transfer window, but Sunderland were determined not to lose one of their best players.

Kone returned to the first team for the 1-1 draw with Southampton and started the 3-0 defeat to Everton on Monday night.
