The French midfielder was expected to sign for the Black Cats on Monday but it is now being reported that the player has flown to France for talks with Auxerre.

"There is no stumbling block," Auxerre Vice-Chairman Gerard Bourguoin has told the French Sports paper L'Equipe.

"There are just different things to negotiate.

"Christian really wants to join us and he matches perfectly the profile we are looking for.
