O'Neill: Richardson's wants to leave

Sunderland manager Martin O'Neill has confirmed that defender Kieran Richardson has stated his desire to leave the club.

Richardson, 27, joined the Wearsiders from Manchester United in 2007 for a fee of £5.5 million but now wants a change of scenery.

Speaking to the Sunderland Echo, O'Neill said: "Kieran came to see me in the transfer window and for family issues and what have you, he thought maybe a change would suit him."

O'Neill praised Richardson's performance after Sunderland's 0-0 draw at Arsenal on Saturday - and confirmed the club have not yet received an offer, despite reports that West Ham and QPR were interested in the player.

"It's been ongoing but no-one has come in and made an offer. Naturally, if he plays like that I'd like to keep him," O'Neill said. "On Saturday I thought he was splendid for us."

Elsewhere Sunderland have been linked with a move for full-back Ivan Strinic. Reports at the weekend claimed that the Wearsiders had submitted an offer of £5 million for the 25-year old.

It's believed FC Dnipro would want more that that for the Croatia international, but that a deal could still happen.
