Journalist Igor Semyon is reporting that the Zorya manager mentioned the news that Rusyn is set to leave the club during his post-match presser after the attacker was left out of his squad.

According to sources in Ukraine, Sunderland and Nazariy Rusyn are reportedly close to signing a contract.

The Zorya manager reportedly highlighted Rusyn’s impending departure from the team at his post-match press conference after the attacker was left out of his lineup, according to journalist Igor Semyon.

Semyon has also stated that the player is set for a medical at Sunderland and is awaiting a work permit before finalising the details of his move to the North East.

However, Rusyn wasn’t named in the squad as Ukrainian side Zorya Lugansk won 2-1 against Vorskla last weekend prompting speculation that a move was close – and was again left out of the squad for this weekend’s round of fixtures.

Rusyn played in Zorya Lugansk’s first two league games of the season yet manager Nenad Lalatovic said the striker missed the Vorskla game with a minor injury.

Reports in Ukraine have stated that Sunderland have submitted a “final” offer with the said to be between €2million and €3million (£1.7million to £2.5million) and that a move is close. Talk has also suggested that Zorya will receive a 20% sell-on clause.

The Black Cats drew against Coventry City in the Championship last weekend with Tony Mowbray’s side once again struggling to score without an experienced senior striker.
