O'Neill keen to keep Gardner

Published Add your comment

Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill reiterated his desire to keep hold of Craig Gardner after the homesick midfielder sealed a 2-0 victory over Swansea in stunning style.

Gardner's 85th-minute volley extended the lead Stephane Sessegnon's fine 14th-minute finish had given the Black Cats and killed off any hope of a comeback by the Swans. The midfielder has been linked with a move back to the midlands this month after struggling to settle on Wearside following his £5million summer move.

However, O'Neill is ever more keen for him to stay, saying: "We want him to stay at the football club. At this moment, there has been no concrete offer."
