Louis Saha told he can leave Sunderland
Frenchman has failed to make impact at Stadium of Light
Thursday 17 January 2013
Striker Louis Saha has been told he is free to leave Sunderland.
The 34-year-old Frenchman arrived on a one-year deal in the summer after being released by Tottenham but has failed to make an impact at the Stadium of Light.
Manager Martin O'Neill told the Shields Gazette: "We have told Louis he is free to speak to other clubs and to leave if he can fix himself up somewhere.
"We have come to an agreement whereby we will cancel the remainder of his contract, shake hands and go our separate ways."
O'Neill added that a move to South Africa was a possibility for the former Fulham, Manchester United and Everton striker.
