Sunderland are hoping that they can bring forward a deal that would see Yann M’Vila move to the Stadium of Light sooner than planned.
The Frenchman is due to return to Wearside in January when he becomes a Sunderland player following his contract running out with Rubin Kazan.
David Moyes wants to bring in the player sooner rather than wait until the agreed time and it is believed that the Russians are willing to release him from his contract if the Black Cats stump up £7 million.
Whether or not Sunderland are willing to pay remains to be seen, but you would imagine they are willing to deal as M’Vila is on his way to Wearside now.
