Sunderland have not made an offer for Carlos. They have not phoned me.
Earlier this summer it was widely expected that the Spaniard would be moving to the Stadium Of Light and linking up once again with Martin O'Neill, who paid Glasgow Rangers £7.8m for his services in 2008 whilst in charge at Villa Park.
Since then things have gone a little quiet, and there have been rumblings that Cuellar, now 30-years old, is favouring either Greek side Olympiakos or former club Osasuna.
Cuellar could well become a regular at either club, where as here it's likely he'd play second fiddle to Phil Bardsley at right-back plus become at best third of fourth choice in the centre of defence. It looks like we can cross this one off any 'wishlist' fans may have had.
