Former Hull City striker Dame N’Doye is undergoing a medical at Sunderland ahead of a loan move to the Stadium of Light, sources have told TEAMtalk.com.
Sunderland have agreed a deal with Turkish club Trabzonspor to sign N’Doye on loan for six months as Sam Allardyce looks to bolster his attacking options.
N’Doye joined Hull from Lokomotiv Moscow for around £3million last February but was sold to Trabzonspor last summer for around £2.2million after Steve Bruce’s side were relegated.
The 30-year-old has struggled for form at Trabzonspor, failing to score in 12 league appearances for the club, and the Turkish side are willing to loan him out.
Sunderland have struggled for goals this season and Allardyce is desperate to bring in more attacking firepower as he looks to guide the side to Premier League safety.
N’Doye, who scored five goals in 15 Premier League games last season for Hull, will become Sunderland’s second signing of January following the arrival of Jan Kirchhoff if he successfully comes through his medical.
