Ki Sung-Yueng Unsure On His Future

Clive Brunskill

Ki Sung-Yueng has admitted the he doesn't know where he'll be playing next season.

If there is one move in transfer market that the majority of Sunderland fans would want to happen in the summer, it would be for the club to make Ki Sung-Yueng's move from Swansea City permanent.

With the South Korean becoming so crucial to how Gus Poyet's team plays, there is no doubt the head coach will feel the same way, the midfielder himself however is not so sure where his future lies. Speaking after the 3-0 derby win at Newcastle United, Ki explained;

I don't know if I will be playing in this fixture next season, honestly.

But I am really pleased with all the fans, all the staff and all of the players.

I don't know what will happen in the future but at the minute I am very happy playing for this club and with these boys.

Ki is clearly enjoying his football at the moment and the club will no doubt attempt to sign the £6m rated midfielder come the summer but with Michael Laudrup leaving his position as Swansea manager, it may be more difficult to persuade the Welsh club to sell the 25-year-old. It appeared Ki's falling out with Laudrup was one of the key reasons he was allowed out on loan.

Meanwhile, the player was also full of praise for Poyet, the Sunderland fans, and spoke about the team's improving form;

The derby win was a really special game for me and it always is to play in front of these Sunderland supporters. They are always behind us even though we did not deserve it sometimes. They have been great because they have waited for things to turn around and they are now able to celebrate better results.

Since the new manager came in we have improved a lot with and without the ball. As the game goes on we have started to win and got confidence as individuals and as a team. That's why we have got a lot stronger. We still have plenty games still to go so we have to keep our concentration on all of the games.

When you see us play like we have been, it does make us wonder why we have been at the bottom when we know we can play like this. We should not be but we could not get the results, even when we performed well we could not score. We were unlucky. All of these things, but now we are having greater concentration to win the games.

Even when we are scoring we are never conceding goals. We are no longer bottom and we need to keep going to make sure we don't drop back down there.

Hopefully the club will push the boat out in the summer and do everything possible to sign Ki on a permanent deal, as it would be extremely hard to replace the classy midfielder who has quickly become one of the best midfielders Sunderland have had since they returned to the Premier League in the 2007/08 season.
