The 20-year-old central defender has already featured for Sunderland in the FA Cup and EFL Trophy – but he is yet to make his league debut.

Taylor could now be ready to leave the Stadium of Light before making his league debut – as he is wanted by a number of top-flight clubs.

Leicester, Everton, Southampton and Bournemouth have checked on Taylor in recent weeks and they are all ready to make a move.

Meanwhile, Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti has identified three January targets – including Juventus midfielder Emre Can – in a bid to bolster his midfield, according to reports.

Ancelotti has steadied the ship since arriving at Goodison Park, guiding the Toffees to three wins from six games in all competitions having seen their form drop under Marco Silva.
