SUNDERLAND defender Titus Bramble has indicated that he is leaving the Stadium of Light when his contract expires next month.

Bramble’s three-year deal with the Black Cats is due to reach an imminent conclusion and Sunderland are not thought to have made any attempt to negotiate a new one for one of the club’s top earners.

And the 31-year-old, who has not featured since Paolo Di Canio took charge, suggested on Twitter today that his time on Wearside was up.

“I’ve had a great three years and would like to thank every #SAFC fan for the support they have shown,” he said.

“The NE is a special place to play and will always be close to my heart. I wish the club and my teammates all the best for the future.”

Former Newcastle centre-half Bramble arrived in a £1million deal from Wigan in the summer of 2010 and initially impressed under Steve Bruce.

But Bramble was hampered by a series of knee problems which restricted him to 42 Premier League starts during his Sunderland tenure.

As the Echo revealed earlier this week, there is interest from America’s Major League Soccer to take Bramble across the Atlantic on a free transfer.
