Sunderland are closing in on Toulouse midfielder Moussa Sissoko.

The Daily Mail says Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill is close to signing French star Sissoko, 23, in a £3.5million deal.

The midfielder is being made available by his club Toulouse as his contract is up in the summer and they don't want to miss out on a fee.

O'Neill, who is still keen on Swansea striker Danny Graham, will make an offer next week.
