Zokora fancies Black Cats switch

Zokora fancies Black Cats switch

Sunderland target Didier Zokora would be interested in a move to the Stadium of Light.

The Black Cats were first linked with a move for the 28-year-old at the weekend and today`s Sun reports that the Sunderland face a fight with Sevilla and Atletico Madrid for the Tottenham players signature.

The player`s agent, Rachel Anderson, told reporters: 'Didier would definitely prefer to stay in the Premier League.

'He would do very well at Sunderland, they're an absolutely massive club.

'There are not many clubs Didier would leave Tottenham for, but I think Sunderland are one.

'If the terms of the deal are decent, but also if the move is an adventure, then he would be interested.

'I think he would bring a different dimension to Sunderland.

'Whether they are prepared to pay the fee Tottenham are asking, which I've been told is 'double figure millions', remains to be seen. They paid £8million for him, he has improved so they want more.

'He has three or four English clubs interested, and a couple of Spanish clubs, one of which is very keen but may be struggling to match his fee, and another which can afford it.'

The Sun reported a figure of £7.5m for the player today. Either way his future seems destined to be away from White Hart Lane.

You're better off with Teemu Tainio if you can keep him fit. Zokora is all heart but lacks ALOT in any technical area of his game. Possesion will certainly not be something associated with Sunderland if he is in your first team. You'll love the bloke, he's a great character, but honestly you're better off. Still... We want the money so thanks in advance if you do get him ;)
