Sunderland have agreed a deal with AZ Alkmaar for the services of United States international Jozy Altidore and the striker is expected to settle personal terms with the ‘Black Cats’ in the upcoming days.
Alkmaar confirmed an agreement has been reached on their official website but declined to reveal the transfer fee.
The 23-year-old, who played in the Premier League for Hull City in the 2009/10 season, will travel to England and could have a medical on Monday.
Altidore, who has two years left in his current contract, moved to the Netherlands two years ago from Villareal and has been a success, scoring 38 times in 67 league appearances.
During his time at Villareal, he had a season-long loan at Hull and was red carded in a 1-0 home defeat by Sunderland on 24 April, 2010.
Sunderland have already recruited the likes of Modibo Diakite, Valentin Roberge, Cabral, Duncan Watmore, David Moberg Karlsson and goalkeeper Vito Mannone.
Should Altidore pen down for Sunderland, it makes the club the busiest Premier League side of the summer with seven signings.
