Black Cats face battle as Spurs go for Da Silva
Sunderland target Paulo Da Silva has been approached by an eleventh hour bid from another Premier League club, despite rumours that he had already agreed a move to Sunderland.
The player was believed to be arriving in England this week to finalise the deal, but has revealed there has been interest from an un-named English club.
The 29-year-old said: 'I have been offered a three-year contract with a team you already know about - Sunderland - but I'm now waiting an on offer from another English team,' said Da Silva.
'I'm sure in the next few days I will know who I'm going to sign for.
'I have to stop off in Paraguay to solve some visa problems, then I will meet with people in England to see what is the best thing for me.'
