Sunderland fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to have their say on the imminent signing of Wahbi Khazri.
Bordeaux have announced on the official website that they have agreed a fee with Sunderland for the transfer of Khazri.
The 24-year-old Tunisia international is an attacking midfielder, and he is being signed in order to add creativity to the Black Cats’ game.
