Sunderland boss Steve Bruce is closing in on the signing of keeper Simon Mignolet but faces competition from PSV Eindhoven.
The Belgian Under-21 international will head to Wearside over the weekend to view Sunderland's ground and facilities with Bruce hopeful the Sunderland set-up will convince Mignolet to move to the Stadium of Light.
Mignolet confirmed he will travel to England to see what Sunderland have to offer.
The youngster told Belgian newspaper Het Belang van Limburg: "The idea is to talk to people and see the facilities."
However, Dutch side PSV remain interested in signing Mignolet and the player's agent, Guy Vandersmissen, admitted the shot-stopper had yet to reach a decision regarding his future.
Vandersmissen said: "Sunderland continue to be very interested. But logically we will visit the club before we take further steps and talk about a contract.
"We will see how Simon feels after this visit. We stress however that PSV remain a candidate."
Neither Sunderland or PSV have agreed a fee with Mignolet's current employers, Belgian side St Truidense, although he is expected to leave during the close season.
