Louis Saha could be set for a move to Sunderland this summer.

With Nicklas Bendtner’s loan spell coming to an end, Black Cats manager Martin O’Neill has made no secret about his search for a striker.

Saha is a free agent now that his contract with Tottenham Hotspur has expired and whilst he has been linked with Sam Allardyce’s West Ham, he had made clear he is open to a move to the north-east.

The Frenchman said: “"I would consider going to Sunderland.

"Anything can happen in the transfer market, though, it's always a tense time.

"It's all about making the right choices and the nice thing is to have options."

The Frenchman has had well documented injury problems but signing him on a free reduces the risk for Sunderland and the 33-year-old would bring much experience to the squad.
