The attacking right-back, who can also operate in midfield, is coming to the end of his current deal with Nice in France and has refused the offer of a new contract at the Allianze Riviera.

He is wanted by St Etienne in France and West Ham are also said to be keen so the deal is by no means straight forward but Black Cats boss Allardyce is hoping to get something sorted quickly and talks have taken place with his representatives.

Sunderland retain an interest in DeAndre Yedlin, who spent last term on loan at the Stadium of Light, but his future appears unclear and a move for 27-year-old Pied would almost certainly end any future interest in the USA star.
