SUNDERLAND have been linked with a move for wantaway Blackburn midfielder Steven N’Zonzi.

The £5million-rated Frenchman has been left out of Blackburn’s pre-season training camp in Austria by boss Steve Kean and is expected to leave Ewood Park before the end of the transfer window.

Arsenal, Spurs and Aston Villa are also monitoring N’Zonzi, who made 32 appearances for Blackburn as they slipped out of the Premier League last season.

O’Neill is thought to be keen to boost his midfield options, but is understood to want more creativity, which may act against the tough-tackling N’Zonzi.
