Sunderland boss Steve Bruce has dismissed speculation he could make a £15million bid for Italy winger Simone Pepe.

Reports have suggested the Back Cats could attempt to lure the Udinese midfielder to Wearside with a club record offer this summer.

However, Bruce said: "Where that one has come from, I don't know."

He added: "I can't envisage me paying £15million for an Italian winger. That's a bit wide of the mark."

Meanwhile, Bruce has confirmed that midfielder Bolo Zenden has been offered another year's contract at the Stadium of Light.
