Sedan defender Paul Baysse says he is close to completing a move to Sunderland. The 21-year-old stopper has made 46 league appearances for the Ligue 1 club since arriving, initially on loan, from Bordeaux in 2007. And the French U21 international's form has attracted interest from several Premier League outfits, with West Ham United and Blackburn Rovers reportedly keen on securing his services, as well as the Black Cats. However, Baysse has now revealed that he is set to put pen to paper with Steve Bruce's side, who have offered him a more lucrative deal. "The wages on offer at Sunderland are 20 percent bigger than the ones offered by West Ham and Blackburn," Baysse told L'Equipe. "And I am attracted by it." SUNDERLAND FANS!
