Sunderland striker looking for exit

Sunderland striker David Healy has issued a 'come and get me' plea to potential buyers as he looks for a way out of the club.

The 30-year-old Northern Ireland international has made just six appearances for the Black Cats this season, all of them as a substitute, and has not started a single league game for the club in the two and a half years since his £1.5million arrival from Leeds.

"I know my future is not going to be at Sunderland," Healy told BBC Sport.

"I'm more than willing to go back to the Championship and get back to enjoying my football again.

"It's been a disappointing time and people have said that it's time to move on, but when you have a contract and a family where you live, sometimes it's difficult."

Healy has been linked with several Coca-Cola Championship clubs in recent weeks and is not aware of anything concrete.

However, he has admitted a return to seemingly Championship-bound Leeds would appeal to him.

He said: "I haven't got my eye on anywhere. I have been linked to a number of Championship clubs, but I can't name anybody.

"But it's two weeks until the end of the transfer window and I know that things aren't going to progress for me at Sunderland.

"If there was a club I was ever going to go back to play for, it would be Leeds. I have huge affection for the club."
