Sunderland could smash its transfer record with a £17m bid lodged for Dider Ndong according to reports.
The Daily Star says Moyes is seriously considering a move for the Gabon international, which would smash the £13m fee they spent on Asamoah Gyan from Rennes back in 2010.
Newcastle United full back Jamie Sterry has joined League One side Coventry City on loan.
Sterry will stay at the Ricoh Arena until January 2017.
The 20-year-old made his first start for the Magpies in last week's 2-0 EFL Cup victory over Cheltenham Town at St. James' Park.
Sterry also put pen to paper on a new four-year contract with United last week, as did fellow Academy product Adam Armstrong - who scored 20 goals while on loan at Coventry last season.
Sterry - who will team up with ex-Magpie Gael Bigirimana in the Sky Blues' ranks - could now make his debut for Tony Mowbray's men in their League One clash at Fleetwood Town on Saturday.
Moussa Sissoko has been allowed to leave the France training camp at Clairefontaine as he looks to seal a move away from Newcastle United.
Tottenham Hotspur have been strongly linked with a move for the Frenchman who has little desire to play in the Championship.
In a tweet, the official feed for the France team said: "Moussa Sissoko was allowed by [France manager] Deschamps to leave Clairefontaine at 9am in order to complete a transfer."
