PHIL Bardsley and Matt Kilgallon will probably never play for Sunderland again, after crossing Paolo Di Canio.

Both were fined after being photographed in a casino in the early hours of Wednesday morning, and both were left out of the trip to Spurs yesterday.

Kilgallon is out of contract this summer and was set to move on anyway. Bardsley has a year left on his contract but this could hasten an exit from the Stadium of Light.

Di Canio said: “I will think about what happens next. At this moment, the way I feel, the players will not be at the club, if it is my decision. Not, for me.

“We have a plan in terms of changes we might make.”
