Sunderland make enquiry over Atletico’s Rodriguez

Friday 18 July 2014

Sunderland have made an enquiry to Spanish champions Atletico Madrid over the availability of winger Christian Rodriguez, who is said to want to leave the Vincente Calderon, the Daily Mail has reported.


Gustavo Poyet


The Uruguayan, who helped his country reach the last 16 of the World Cup, has grown frustrated as his lack of starts for Atletico, making 20 appearances in the league last season and struggling for game time in the latter stages of the Champions League, in which Diego Simeone’s side reached the final.


Black Cats boss Gustavo Poyet is exploring the finances required to help bring the 28-year-old to the Stadium of Light, as he looks to avoid being embroiled in another relegation scrap next season. He has already secured the signings of West Bromwich Albion right-back Billy Jones, Wigan Athletic midfielder Jordi Gomez and Manchester City goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon.


Poyet is also aiming to boost Sunderland’s attacking options, having so far failed in his attempts to bring back Fabio Borini, who was on loan at the club from Liverpool last season. They are also short of wingers, with Adam Johnson, Emanuele Giaccherini and Greek youngster Charis Mavrias the only natural wide-men at the club.
