Sunderland are on the brink of signing Cardiff City midfielder Jordan Mutch.

The Daily Mail says Sunderland have agreed a £1.5million deal for Mutch, 22.

Mutch was Cardiff's top goalscorer last season and was not keen to drop back down to the Championship.

The club are looking to wrap up many deals early on, with Billy Jones and Jordi Gomez already signed.
