Monaco to beat Southampton and Sunderland in race for Lille defender Djibril Sidibe

Southampton and Sunderland are resigned to losing out to Monaco in the race to land Djibril Sidibe.

The Ligue 1 club have reportedly agreed personal terms with the Lille defender and are close to sealing an £11million switch for the 23-year-old.

According to L’Equipe, Monaco have also agreed allow Rony Lopes to go the other way on loan and expect a deal to be announced by the end of the week.

Sunderland and Southampton could still hijack any deal by slapping down a higher offer.

But it is understood that both clubs have given up on their respective pursuits.
