With Titus Bramble nearing the end of his contract it's being widely reported this morning that he will be leaving the country and making a switch to the MLS, although no teams have been named as having an interest in the bulky defender.
Having signed for the club on a three-year deal in 2010 from Wigan Athletic, it's been a tumultuous time for Bramble on Wearside and there's absolutely no chance he'll be having his contract renewed.
Surprisingly he has had some decent games, however the vast majority of his 42 appearances for the club have been relatively poor, as we had expected when he arrived. Call it regressing to the mean.
Bramble has been on the fringes of the team throughout his career with Sunderland for one reason or another. Form is one issue but all too often he hasn't been fit enough. Certainly not fit enough for Paolo Di Canio who has had him completely out of sight and out of mind since he arrived to replace Martin O'Neill.
One option which I'm just throwing out there randomly could be Toronto FC. New manager Ryan Nelsen has taken a chance on Steven Caldwell and is supposedly looking at other Premier League rejects, so Bramble would be right at home.
It's little surprise the 31-year old fancies a move Stateside. You've all seem Man Vs Food, right?
