Sunderland appears to be leading the race to sign Mousa Dembele before the end of the transfer window, according to the Mirror.

Dick Advocaat wants to boost the Black Cats squad with a new attacking midfielder before the end of the transfer window.

Although Tottenham's manager Mauricio Pochettino insisted that the Belgian midfielder will be in his plans this season, Mousa wants to move away to look for a new challenge.

The 28-year-old Belgian midfielder started just 10 Premier League games for Tottenham last season. However, he was in the club's line-up for their 1-0 opening day defeat at Manchester United.

Dembele has spoken with his manager Mauricio Pochettino about his place in his plans during pre-season. He wants to move away from White Hart Lane in order to get more first-team football but the Spurs would only offload him if a £15m bid is submitted.

West Ham and Chelsea have both been linked with the former Fulham player. However, Dembele has another two years in Spurs contract left and it seems increasingly likely that he will stay at White Hart Lane this summer.

The 28-year-old Belgian who has represented his country 62 times, joined the Spurs in the summer of 2012 from Fulham for a fee of £15 million.

Sunderland manager Dick Advocaat has already signed defender Younes Kaboul from Spurs this summer.

The Black Cats lost their first Premier League game this season against Leicester City 4-2.
