ONDREJ Celustka hopes his season-long stint at Sunderland will see him earn a move away from Turkish side Trabzonspor this summer.

Full-back Celustka made 20 starts for the Black Cats and earned an international debut for the Czech Republic after arriving on loan at the Stadium of Light last August.

There is no prospect of Sunderland making a permanent move for Celustka after he slipped down the pecking order under Gus Poyet – his last Premier League start coming in the New Year’s Day’s defeat to Aston Villa.

But neither does the 24-year-old want to return to Trabzonspor, with the Turkish side reportedly equally eager to sell Celustka, as they look to remove their overseas players from the wage bill.

“After my experience in England and playing in the Premier League, to go back to Trabzonspor now would be a backwards step,” Celustka told the Czech press.

“Going there three years ago was very different.

“Therefore, I either want to stay in England or go to Germany.”
