IGNACIO SCOCCO is expected to remain in Argentina until the end of 2013, with only Champions League football likely to tempt the winger to return to Europe.

Sunderland were linked with Scocco this week after reports in the South American media of discussions between the Black Cats and the 28-year-old’s representatives.

Scocco has netted 30 goals in 40 appearances for Argentinian outfit Newell’s Old Boys this season after joining on loan from United Arab Emirates club Al-Ain, and he is not thought to be keen on returning to the Middle East.
