SAFC Paper Talk #5

SAFC Paper Talk #5
Defenders Matt Kilgallon and Marcos Angeleri look set for the exit door at the Stadium of Light, according to reports.

Argentinian defender Angeleri was always likely to leave after playing just three times under Steve Bruce, the man who brought him to the country.

A somewhat mis-guided cry of racism aimed at the departed boss didn't exactly help the Argentine international's cause.

Angeleri will now meet with officials from Argentinian side, Independiente next week.

Kilgallon on the other hand, enjoyed something of a second-coming at the Stadium of Light this season as he established himself as an option under Martin O'Neill.

With injuries to Titus Bramble, Michael Turner, Wes Brown and John O'Shea at one point or another, Kilgallon slotted in seamlessly at the back.

Despite making eight league and cup appearances for O'Neill, Kilgallon is one of several defenders who look likely to find themselves cast aside this summer.

With the former Villa boss known to be keen on bringing Carlos Cuellar to Wearside, Bramble, Turner and Kilgallon's places will all be under threat.

Keeping an eye on the situation is Leeds United boss, Neil Warnock, who worked with Kilgallon at Sheffield United.

The 28 year-old came through the youth ranks at Elland Road and United are linked with a move to bring Kilgallon back to his first club.
