Charles N’Zogbia could be on the move again! The Aston Villa winger recently joined from Wigan but has not made the impact everyone expected at Villa Park and struggling Sunderland look set to bolster their slim attacking options by testing Villa’s nerve.

Steve Bruce has been told by the board that he will have funds in January to improve his squad and he has set his sights on the French international. Reports suggest he is ready to place a £15 million bid on the table for the former Newcastle man.

The 25 year old played under Bruce when the former Man United defender was in charge at the DW Stadium and is meant to be keeping a close eye on the situation. A source at Sunderland FC told the People: “Steve Bruce signed N’Zogbia for Wigan and knows he can get the best out of him.”

Sunderland have really struggled thus far and need to improve their attacking options in order to shoot up the table. Bruce signed eleven players during the summer but is yet to get the best out of his squad and he is looking for that quality in the final third.

Villa signed the former Newcastle player for £9m in July and Sunderland must be willing to offer at least £15m to tempt them into selling.
