Ki Yet To Be Contacted By Swansea Over Future

Ki Sung-Yueng says Swansea have not talked to him regarding his future at the Welsh club but he is enjoying life on Wearside.

After becoming an integral part of the Sunderland team since he joined on-loan from Swansea, Ki Sung-Yueng's future has become a major talking point. It was thought that Michael Laudrup's presence at the Welsh club would help Sunderland negotiate a deal, due to the player and manager having a falling out, but after the Danish legend left the Swans, the South Korean midfielder has yet to hear from his parent club;

No, there hasn't been anything.

I don't make my future plans because I don't know about my future.

I had no idea I would be going to Swansea and this season I had no idea I would be coming to Sunderland.

It was unexpected.

Although the move may have been unexpected, the 25-year-old is clearly enjoying life at Sunderland and his definition of a big club hints at a desire to stay with Gus Poyet's team;

I had to make a choice to become a better player and Sunderland gave me a hand and an opportunity.

I don't know about my future, I just try to do my best in every single game I have. My life is like that. I just look to do my best.

Maybe other footballers have a dream, to go to big clubs, but for me a big club is a club that wants me, a club that needs me - that is my idea of a big club.

If they love you and need you, that is a big club for me.

Should Sunderland avoid relegation this season, it seems certain that Poyet will make the the permanent signing of Ki a priority and if we are lucky enough to clinch his signature, it will go down as one of the most popular transfer moves of recent times.
