Saha For The PSL?
16 January 2013
Sunderland manager Martin O’Neill claims French striker Louis Saha could be bound for the PSL.
The 34-year-old former Manchester United and Everton star has been told he can leave the Black Cats, having failed to make a single start there since his loan move to the Stadium of Light last year.
Saha has reportedly been unhappy on the fringes of the Sunderland squad, and so O’Neill has told him he can find a new place to ply his trade.
And according to the Ulsterman, an unnamed South African club is keeping tabs on Saha.
“As of today, we have told Louis he is free to speak to other clubs and to leave if he can fix himself up somewhere,” O’Neill told the Shields Gazette.
“We have come to an agreement whereby we will cancel the remainder of his contract, shake hands and go our separate ways.
“That said, we are still a bit short in terms of numbers, and Louis may stay with us until the end of the month until such time as - hopefully - we have strengthened the squad a little more. But we agreed that he could go as early as today, if he wishes to.
“I have heard that there is some interest in South Africa for Louis, and it might be of some interest to him.”
