Sunderland and Qatari club El-Jaish have agreed a £5million fee for Stephane Sessegnon.

The 29-year old Benin international has been linked with a Stadium of Light departure for much of the summer and it appears as though he will be on the move prior to the close of the transfer window.

Black Cats boss Paolo Di Canio is prepared to offload Sessegnon, who arrived from Paris Saint-Germain in 2011, and the player now only needs to agree personal terms with Al-Jaish before a deal is complete.
