Sunderland eye another French player with midfielder deal reportedly close

Sunderland are reportedly close to adding to their growing contingent of French youngsters by signing midfielder Ateef Konate from Nottingham Forest.

Pierre Ekwah joined Abdoullah Ba and Edouard Michut on Wearside this week and Isaac Lihadji is also expected to complete a move from Lille this month too.

Konate, 21, is also set to join, according to journalist Alan Nixon.

The deal is apparently a loan until the end of the season, although on the face of it that would be a surprise. If Alan Nixon says there is interest then that is very reliable information, although it should be noted that he also reported Pierre Ekwah as a loan deal at first too.
