Former Man United striker Louis Saha set for talks with Sunderland

Free agent Louis Saha reveals he is set to hold talks with Sunderland over a possible move to the Stadium of Light

Louis Saha has revealed he is set to hold talks with Sunderland over a possible move to the Stadium of Light.

The 34-year-old was released by Tottenham Hotspur earlier this summer after a brief six months at White Hart Lane.

Saha, who won two Premier League titles with Manchester United in a five-year spell at Old Trafford, is looking to find a new club in the English top flight before the new season starts.

Sunderland boss Martin O’Neill has only signed Aston Villa defender Carlos Cuellar this summer, and the Black Cats manager revealed his frustration at the club’s lack of transfer activity this summer.

“We know we need to make improvements,” O’Neill told BBC Newcastle.

“It’s important to freshen the squad if we can and we want to try to add some quality to the group.

“We’ve got work to do. We know that, and we’re trying to get there, to get ourselves a proper squad and we’ve got a few weeks in which to work.

“There’s been a bit of a lull, perhaps because of the Olympics, maybe somebody is waiting to make a move and people follow suit.

“I think it’s only a matter of time before there is real genuine moment.”

O’Neill led Sunderland to a respectable 13th-place finish last season after succeeding Steve Bruce as the Black Cats new boss last November.
