Marseille say they have negotiated an "agreement in principle" for former Liverpool striker Djibril Cisse to join Sunderland on a season-long loan.

Black Cats boss Roy Keane has made several summer signings but after his side lost their opening game to Liverpool he said he hoped to add more.

Cisse, 27, joined Liverpool in 2004, but only scored 15 goals in two injury-plagued seasons.

In July last year he joined Marseille on a permanent move after a loan spell. - BBC
