How very interesting and no doubt the first of many links to Sunderland.
It has been said that Sunderland pre MON had wage issues and these two would not come cheap in wages. To see the Daily Mirror link the two is of no surprise at all.
Of course reading this story then you wonder at the figure for Gabby – £7M seems well too low for him. However I have no doubt in the summer some big wage earners have to go and I don;t think any player is protected to meet the wage limit that has been set.
