Le Havre fullback Mendy in Sunderland yesterday

Le Havre defender Benjamin Mendy is edging closer to moving to Sunderland.

French media sources say Mendy was on Wearside on Wednesday for talks with the club.

The highly-rated 18-year-old full-back has already shunned approaches from Juventus and Inter Milan, but Sunderland appear hopeful of fending off interesting from Lyon to land Mendy.
