Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill is convinced Stephane Sessegnon is on the brink of returning to his best.

So far this term, he has played in every one of Sunderland's 30 league games - starting 29 of them - and has netted five goals, including two in the last four matches.

O'Neill said: "He is back to enjoying it again, and when he's enjoying himself I think he is really sparkling.

"He's doing exceptionally well at the moment and he needs to continue that until the end of the season."
