Sunderland are looking to continue their efforts this summer with their rebuilding as they look to get back to the Championship.
With the club in League One, Jack Ross and the Black Cats are determined to put together a squad that is capable of challenging for promotion and they have already been active in the transfer window.
The club have already signed a number of players, with a few more still thought to be on the new manager’s wish list, however, he is also looking to offload a number of the side as he looks to reduce the wage bill currently at the Stadium of Light outfit.
Two of those players thought to be wanted away from the club are Papy Djilobodji and Didier Ndong, however, according to a report in The Northern Echo, it could come down to the final minutes of the transfer window for that to happen.
The report is claiming that Sunderland are refusing to budge from their asking price for the pair at the moment, amid interest from potential buyers. Those clubs, however, are thought to be waiting it out and are hoping the Black Cats will reduce their valuations when time starts to run out.
Sunderland are desperate to offload Djilobodji and Ndong as they look to reduce their wage bill.
Both players have made it clear that they do not want to remain at the Stadium of Light for the upcoming season and taking them into League One would not benefit the club.
However, the club may fail to get a decent fee for the pair if they continue to refuse to budge from their demands now and may begin to cave to financial pressures to offload them.
