Ferguson - No permanent switch for Welbeck

21 January 2011 03:30
Sir Alex Ferguson has claimed there is as much chance of him signing for Sunderland on a permanent basis as Danny Welbeck. Potentially pocketing £24million from the sale of Darren Bent to Aston Villa, Sunderland boss Steve Bruce is now trying to find a replacement for the England striker. Even though he is currently sidelined following a minor knee operation, Welbeck has proved himself capable of being a Premier League striker and if Ferguson offered any indication of being willing to sell, Bruce would be first in the queue. Unfortunately for the Black Cats chief, it is not going to happen. "Steve has as much chance of getting me," Ferguson told Key103, when asked about the possibility of Welbeck joining Sunderland on a permanent basis.
