The defender will be allowed to discuss personal terms with the Hornets to complete the deal.Speaking to the Black Cats’ official website, Kaboul, 30, said:

A statement from the club reads: “Younes had spoken with David Moyes in recent days, expressing his desire to leave the club for personal reasons.The club therefore agreed to a request from the player’s representatives to be allowed to speak to Watford regarding a move.An agreement has been reached between the two clubs and the player has been given permission to talk to Watford regarding personal terms.”
