Sunderland have ended their interest in Portsmouth striker Peter Crouch.
The Black Cats agreed personal terms with the 28-year-old when he travelled to Wearside to meet manager Steve Bruce and discuss a proposed £12million last Thursday.
However, Sunderland have decided not to pursue the matter further, believing the England international wants to remain in the south with Fulham and Tottenham also targeting him.
