Sunderland step in with offer to Arsenal defender Daniel Ballard

Sunderland are stepping in to sign Arsenal defender Daniel Ballard.

Football Insider says Ballard is set to sign for Sunderland after his move to Burnley collapsed.

Ballard, 22, reportedly arrived at Turf Moor for a medical but terms could not be agreed and talks broke down at the last minute.

However, the centre-back's camp moved quickly and he is now set to join the Black Cats.

The same report claims a deal has been agreed between Sunderland and the Gunners.

Ballard has already completed a medical at the Stadium of Light and the agreement will become official within the next 24 hours.

Sunderland manager Alex Neil is looking to boost his squad following their return to the Championship.
