Reports suggest that the 24-year-old is set to undergo a medical with the Tigers today ahead of completing a move back to the second tier.

It will bring an end to Honeyman’s career-long stint at the Stadium of Light, but the Black Cats look set to pocket a tidy fee for their academy graduate.

It is understood that the deal will be worth in the region of £400,000 – with an initial payment supplement by further fees in the future.

The deal will also see one of the club’s higher-earners off the wage bill in a move which could free up some more capital for Jack Ross to invest in his side.

Honeyman’s contract was set to expire at the end of the 2019/20 season.
