Sunderland slash asking price for Everton target Kone

Sunderland are willing to sell Lamine Kone for a cut-price fee.

The Sun says they are prepared to take a knock-down £7 million for Kone after the pain of relegation.

The Ivory Coast centre-back, 28, was valued at almost THREE times that last season when Everton came calling soon after his arrival from French club Lorient.

But Black Cats owner Ellis Short will now take the lower sum.

Kone is desperate to move on after taking a share of the blame for a disastrous campaign.
