Sunderland striker Stephane Sessegnon could be moving to West Bromwich Albion on transfer deadline day after the west Midlands club made an offer of £6 million, according to The Daily Mail.
The Beninese forward has been out-of-favour since the arrival of current manager Paolo Di Canio, and West Brom boss Steve Clarke is in need of an extra striker to help veteran Nicholas Anelka.
West Brom are without a goal this season after losing 2-0 at home on Sunday to Swansea City.
Sessegnon was reportedly set to move abroad to Qatar club El-Jaish, but would prefer a move that kept him in England. However, the player's future is uncertain amidst the fractured atmosphere around the Stadium of Light.
Di Canio made ten summer signings in the current window but doesn't seem to need Sessegon, even though striker Connor Wickham has been in poor form.
The Mackems lost 3-1 at Crystal Palace on Sunday after a dismal display saw captain John O'Shea red-carded after giving away a reckless penalty. One ray of hope was the goal of returning striker Steven Fletcher, whose well-guided header levelled the match.
Sunderland also have Jozy Altidore among their attacking options but the big American missed Sunday's defeat with a hamstring injury.
Steve Clarke has already added Marseille midfielder Morgan Amalfitano to his squad, and will be hoping their offer for Sessegnon is accepted in order to inject some much-needed energy into his West Brom side.
