Sunderland re-enter negotiations for Lamine Koné

According to L’Équipe, Premier League strugglers Sunderland have re-entered negotiations with Lorient for the transfer of Lamine Koné, a player who was due to join them at the beginning of the transfer window only for the Black Cats to call the move off.

Everything had been agreed before the January transfer window opened and Koné even went to England for a medical, but Sunderland pulled out of the deal at the last minute by changing certain clauses in Koné’s proposed contact which they knew he would not accept.

Well, talks have restarted between the two clubs and a move is now back on as a possibility during this transfer window.
