West Brom have reportedly had a £7.5million bid for Sunderland and Aston Villa target Cheikh N’Doye rejected by his club Angers.
According to L’Equipe, the Ligue 1 high-flyers have rejected the bid for the in-form midfielder – but could be tempted to sell the Senegalese star should interested clubs make an offer in the region of £10million.
The midfielder is a star player at Angers with five goals already this season and four man of the match awards.
The newly-promoted side have been flying in Ligue 1 and moved up to second last weekend with a win over Caen.
But Angers’ success has caught the eye of a number of Premier League clubs and Tony Pulis’ side have Aston Villa and Sunderland for company in the pursuit of N’Doye.
Villa manager Remi Garde has been scouring France for signings to help drag them out of the relegation zone but admitted earlier this week that the club’s position at the foot of the table was putting off would-be signings.
L’Equipe claim Angers have yet to receive a bid from either Villa or Sam Allardyce’s Sunderland – but do expect one before the end of the transfer window after sending scouts to watch the player in action.
