Agent Rubbishes Striker Loan Talk

Seems earlier Altidore rumours were total rubbish...

Jozy Altidore looks set to remain a Sunderland player today, despite brief rumours circulating earlier about a potential return to Holland.

The Daily Mail suggested that Sunderland were 'listening to offers' for the American, and a story linking him with a loan move to PSV Eindhoven soon followed.

However, the player's agent later insisted:

There is no truth to it.

Jozy is happy at Sunderland and is very happy with Gus as a manager. He is looking forward to tomorrow's derby with Newcastle.

Altidore's fellow striker Steven Fletcher had also been linked with a move away, but a bid was reportedly rebuffed by Sunderland yesterday.

But having secured the signing of Nacho Scocco, Poyet's focus seems to have turned to the midfield dilemma of whether to cash-in on Lee Cattermole and replace him, or leave things as they are until the summer.
