Muntari Joins Sunderland
All things being equal, Sulley Muntari will sign for Sunderland as he sojourns to North East England to continue his career.
British media reported yesterday that the Black Stars player who is out of favor with new Inter Milan coach Leornado flew to England yesterday to discuss a possible transfer to the Black Cats.
He was likely to join the impressive Steve Bruce side, who are now sixth on the Barclays English Premiership, on loan.
Sunderland meanwhile will have the option to sign him on a permanent basis in a deal worth about £6million during the summer.
Sources in Italy have said that the Inter Milan star had given up on a move to London though the wife Menaye Donkor favored there and is set to join Ghanaian compatriots, Baby Jet Asamoah Gyan and John Mensah.
It is believed that the two influenced Muntari to consider moving to the North Eastern club.
Muntari, 26, has grown frustrated on the bench at Inter since Coach Jose Mourinho who sign him for £14m some two and half years ago from Portsmouth, joined Real Madrid.
Though he trained with Inter over the weekend, he was left out of the team that was thrashed 3-1 by Udinese.
Boss Steve Bruce is believed to be interested in Muntari since he brings more bite into offensive midfield after the departure of Darren Bent to Aston Villa.
He is hoping to play in Europe for the first time with Sunderland and expects the former Konongo Oduamse Secondary School student to play against Chelsea Tuesday.
