Stephane Sessegnon is the subject of a £6m bid from West Brom, according to reports.

The move is likely to break the Baggies’ transfer record if it goes through.

Sessegnon was left out of Sunderland’s squad for their game at Crystal Palace on Saturday, increasing speculation that a move could be on the cards.

He had been linked with a move to Al-Jaish, but now it appears West Brom are ready to hand him a Premier League lifeline.
