Sunderland midfielder Didier N’Dong is very close to completing a negotiation of £6.6m deal that will move him to Torino, according to Skysport.

The Sunderland midfielder has spent the second half of last season on loan at Watford but was unable to ensure a single senior appearance for the Hornets before returning to Wearside.

The 23-year-old, who was Sunderland’s record signing in 2016, when he moved from Lorient for £13.6m, is firm with his intentions to leave the Black Cats after their relegation to Sky Bet League One.

Didier Ndong has played 18 times for the Gabon national team and at the age of 23. He has also a lot of potentials to grow in the future. But before leaving for Watford on loan for the second half of the season, N’dong had made 21 appearances for Sunderland in all competitions.

As a versatile midfielder, N’Dong has played mainly as a central midfielder throughout his career, yet he was able to play well as a defensive midfielder and even out wide on the left or right.
