Hamburg deny Demel Sunderland rumours
Tuesday 19 January 2010
Hamburg chairman Bernd Hoffmann has revealed that he has received no bids for Ivory Coast international Guy Demel.
The 28-year-old defender hinted last week that he could be heading to Sunderland this month, but Hoffmann doubts that will be the case.
The Black Cats, who suffered a humiliating 7-2 defeat at Chelsea on Saturday, have a wealth of defensive injury problems with Nyron Nosworthy (knee), John Mensah (calf) and Anton Ferdinand (ankle) all currently injured.
However, Hoffmann said: "It has been in the news that there is a club from England interested in the services of Guy Demel.
"There has, however, not been any bid for him. Looking at the current facts, Guy Demel is still part of our Bundesliga squad."
