Dong-Won Could Be Gone Soon; Dong-Won Could Be Gone from Cats Soon


SUNDERLAND are hoping interest from his former club allows them to cut their losses on striker Ji Dong-Won, writes STUART RAYNER. The South Korean (pictured left) is one of a host of players Martin O'Neill would like to move on in January - but only if he can get players in to replace them. Bringing some money in will be an essential part of that process. Chairman Ellis Short has this week been leading the charge for Premier League clubs to control their spending, and will practise what he preaches in the New Year. The Texan owner sanctioned an outlay of PS22m on Steven Fletcher and Adam Johnson in August, and will be reluctant to sanction another hefty outlay next month without some money coming the other way.

At the same time, manager O'Neill is acutely aware his squad is not big enough to cope with the demands of Premier League football, and as he put it at the weekend "we want to try and strengthen if at all possible rather than let players go." That said, there are players in his squad O'Neill has little faith in, or who are seen as a drain on resources.

Fraizer Campbell has been interesting Championship clubs - most notably former side Hull City and hometown club Huddersfield Town - all season, but Although he scored a consolation goal in Saturday's 3-1 defeat to Manchester United, it was Campbell's first since February 1 and he has not started a game since the opening day of the season at Arsenal. Given the opportunity to say Campbell had a long-term future at the Stadium of Light after his weekend header, O'Neil would only commit himself to: "We will need Fraizer around here between now and New Year for a start." Titus Bramble is another player Sunderland would ideally like off the wage bill in January, with Queens Park Rangers reportedly interested in the central defender. But with only half a year left on his contract, he would not command a big fee.
