Sunderland appear to be even closer to putting the Didier Ndong saga fully behind them once and for all.
The Gabon international had his contract terminated by the Stadium of Light outfit and has been looking for a new club ever since.
And, according to one football club, it appears as though he could be returning to France.
En Avant de Guingamp have released an announcement on their official Twitter account stating that they have reached an agreement in principle to sign Ndong.

They have also stated that they had agreed to a deal with Sunderland to sign the player, which is expected to give the League One club a windfall of £3.5million, per the Newcastle Chronicle.
The Black Cats have been performing well without the 24-year-old and currently sit within contention of returning back to the Championship.
Sunderland will be delighted to hear that they could be about to receive a windfall of cash for Ndong.
Following the way the Gabon midfielder conducted himself during his time at the Stadium of Light, there may have been doubts about whether the player would ever be handed a deal at a new club.
Sunderland will now look to push on with their Championship aspirations and will look to forget all about the 24-year-old and his time at the Stadium of Light.
