SAFC Paper Talk #10

SAFC Paper Talk #10
With pre-season beginning to gather pace now, the Vital Sunderland 'Paper Talk' is back to bring you the latest Black Cat's transfer talk.

With Carlos Cuellar already added at centre-back, Martin O'Neill is known to be looking to offload one of Titus Bramble, Michael Turner or Matt Kilgallon - all of whom are in the last 12 months of their contracts.

Norwich City are believed to be interested in making a move for former Hull City man, Turner.

Any departure could be dependent on the fitness of Wes Brown who will undergo a scan in the near future to determine the damage to his knee suffered in Korea.

Striker Gabriel Agbonlahor has denied his will be making the move to Wearside, despite a number of rumours linking him with a reunion with former boss, O'Neill.

Speaking to The Evening Chronicle, Agbonlahor said:

'Looking at it over the summer, I`m just laughing at myself thinking 'where do they get these links from?`'

'I`m an Aston Villa player, it`s my home-town team and I love the club. As long as I`m contracted to the club then I`ll continue to play for them - until I get told otherwise.'

Wolves striker Steven Fletcher is another man who won't be winging his way to the Stadium of Light just yet.

Most media sources are reporting that any deal to bring the Scotland striker to Sunderland is hanging on whether or not a sell-on clause can be agreed as part of the deal.

Finally, Black Cat's midfielder David Meyler is still wanted by O'Neill, despite reports earlier in the summer to suggest a move would do the Irishman good.

O'Neill had said he would look to move to the midfielder on in order to get him some game time, however, having featured in both friendlies so far, Meyler looks to have changed the gaffer's mind.

'There`s loads of people interested in Meyler,' O'Neill told The Sunderland Echo.

"But I think he`s got great courage and he`s a really great kid.

"I like him a lot and I can understand why teams want him.'
