Black Cats face battle as Spurs go for Da Silva

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.'

We were linked with this guy mid season if I recall correctly. Seen him once or twice for Paraguay, looked pretty solid, but certainly not better than Woody or King. Or Dawson for that matter. Add to that the fact he'd be more likely to get first team footy at Sunderland and I doubt we'd be the side making an aproach. It just so happens that 'an un-named club' has become a synonym for 'Tottenham Hotspur.'

Let Tottenham Hotspur have him as i don't seem to know that much about this player. Then we can have Kean and Bent who have premiership qualities.
