Braithwaite came off the bench at half-time in Scotland’s 1-0 friendly win over Denmark on Tuesday and impressed at Hampden Park with Black Cats’ officials among scouts from several clubs checking him out.

Sunderland appointed ex-Leeds man Martin Glover as their new head of recruitment in January after he worked with boss Sam Allardyce at both Blackburn and West Ham in the past and he is continuing to work hard on transfer targets moving forward.

Braithwaite, who is under contract at Toulouse until summer 2017, is valued at around £8million after an impressive campaign in France where he has hit 11 goals in all competitions so far this season.
