The Black Cats are looking to increase their options in goal despite already having Thomas Myhre and Mart Poom on their books, and have been in negotiations with Davis about a potential transfer.
Whilst the clubs have reached an accord over a fee for the former Luton man, talks are still ongoing regarding the terms of his contract.
Davis, who was named in the Championship Team of the Year, admits he is keen to move to the Premiership new-boys, and voiced his hope that negotiations could be wrapped up in the near future.
"I have left things with my agent and if it takes two hours or two weeks to resolve I don't mind," said Davis.
"When I spoke to Mick [McCarthy] we sorted everything out football-wise, but negotiations can take time.
"We are sorting out the terms and the sooner it is sorted out the better as far as I am concerned.
"That way Ipswich will get the money they want.
"But we'll just have to wait to see what happens - it is all down to the terms.
The 28-year-old also rejected reports that suggested he was not keen on upping sticks and moving to the north, with some reports suggesting that West Ham were also tracking the impressive shot stopper.
"That is absolutely not true," Davis continued. "I have spoken to Sunderland and that's as far as it has gone, we are still in negotiations."
