Sunderland reportedly set to lose high profile player

Seb Larsson’s time at Sunderland appears to be over. The 32-year-old Larsson had been offered a new deal by the Black Cats, however it now appears that the club have accepted that they will lose him considering that he has not given a firm answer.

Last month, the agent of Larsson, Per Jonssen revealed that the player attracted interest from clubs in England, China,Turkey as well as his homeland of Sweden.

Considering that the Black Cats were relegated from the Premier League last season, he may fancy a new challenge.

Larsson had been Sunderland’s longest serving player, having joined the club in July 2011 on a free transfer after his contract with Birmingham City had expired.

During his time with the club, he made 203 appearances in all competitions and notched 14 goals. John O’Shea meanwhile, has extended his stay at the Stadium of Light by signing a new one year deal.
