Transfer talk: Inter Milan star linked with Sunderland and Newcastle

Have your say

INTER Milan midfielder Joel Obi has again been linked with a move to Sunderland.

The Nigerian was rumoured to be on the Black Cats radar last season after finding himself confined to the fringes at the San Siro, primarily due to injury problems.

Reports in Italy suggest Obi is likely to be offloaded this summer and claims both Sunderland and Newcastle are tracking the 22-year-old.

But Sunderland’s interest in the January transfer window was never concrete and it remains unlikely that Obi will be Obi among Paolo Di Canio’s influx of new recruits.
