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.
