Sunderland are eyeing QPR left-back Armand Traore.

The Daily Mail says Sunderland are considering a move for Traore.

Manager Paolo di Canio has made enquiries about a loan for Valencia's Aly Cissokho but Traore, 23, is available for £1.5m after failing to secure a move to Spartak Moscow earlier this month.
