Portuguese daily newspaper Record has learned that Sunderland have agreed a deal to sign Greek midfielder Andreas Samaris.
The Black Cats reportedly had a €20 million proposal rejected for the experienced footballer on transfer deadline day in January, but they did not give up on the long-term target.
According to Record, Sunderland have since managed to reach an agreement with the Eagles, but the transfer will only go through in case they avoid relegation to the Championship.
That seems easier said than done considering that the Black Cats find themselves 7 points adrift of safety, albeit with a game in hand, and they are 9/1 chance to stay in the Premier League.
Not so long ago, Andreas Samaris was on the radar of top European clubs, but he has since lost his place in the side at Estadio da Luz, and everything suggests he will be moving clubs at the end of the season.
