Keane dismisses Vieira bid

Published Add your comment

Sunderland boss Roy Keane insisted he was mystified by reports that he will attempt to lure former adversary Patrick Vieira to Wearside in January.

The pair memorably clashed on a number of occasions as rival captains of Manchester United and Arsenal, but a number of newspapers had raised the possibility of a sensational bid.

However, Keane said: "I haven't got a clue where it has come from. It's not fair on the club or Patrick Vieira."

He added: "He's at a club, he is under contract and good luck to him. I am sure if you asked him, he has got no intentions of leaving Inter Milan or wherever he is at.

"If he was going to leave there, I am not sure Sunderland would be at the top of his list."
