Black Cats pass up Muntari option

Published Add your comment

Sunderland have decided not to take up an option to buy on-loan midfielder Sulley Muntari on a permanent deal and confirmed the Ghana international will return to Inter Milan immediately.

Muntari has failed to impress since moving to Wearside in January and Sunderland boss Steve Bruce will look elsewhere for reinforcements in the summer.

The 26-year-old former Portsmouth star contributed to the Black Cats' winner at Bolton last week - his shot was bundled into his own net by Zat Knight - but has otherwise disappointed and will not feature for the club again.

Bruce said: "Sulley has been a great professional in his time here and naturally we'd like to thank him for his contribution to our season and wish him all the best for the future."
