Sunderland star’s future in doubt

Sunderland striker Asamoah GyanSunderland striker Asamoah Gyan may yet leave the Stadium of Light according to the player’s agent.

The Ghanian international forward signed for The Black Cats from Rennes for a fee of £13million, and following impressive displays and ten goals last term has been linked with a move away from the Wearside club.

Manager Steve Bruce and Chairman Niall Quinn have been quick to rubbish speculation, but ahead of the first day of pre-season training on Wednesday the 25-year-old’s representative Fabien Piveteau has stated the frontman may yet move.

“I can’t say if he is staying or not. As far as I know, one club has tabled an offer. He is returning to the club for pre-season and we will sit down with the coach to talk about it,” Piveteau is believed to have stated in The Guardian.

Zenit St Petersburg are believed to be the side to have bid for the Accra born player, with Harry Redknapp and Tottenham supposedly also interested.

Meanwhile, Sunderland hope to tie up the signatures of Manchester United trio Darron Gibson, John O’Shea and Wes Brown for a collective £12million in the near future, with the Irish defender the closest of the three to moving thus far.
