Sunderland to send SOS to African forward

Sunderland are eyeing up a loan move for former Hull City striker Dame N’Doye in their efforts to avoid relegation, according to The Daily Mail.

The Black Cats have had a terrible campaign to date and are embroiled in a scrap to stay in the top flight this season.

Sam Allardyce is reportedly keen to bolster his attacking options over the next month, with the former West Ham boss in the market for a number nine that scan score the goals to keep the Wearside club in the Premier League.

N’Doye netted five goals for Hull last season but it was not enough to keep the club in the top tier, with the 30-year-old being sold to Turkish outfit Trabzonspor in the summer.

He is yet to score for his new club and is being linked with a move back to English football, potentially on a loan basis initially.
