Cats dismiss Vieira rumours

05 Oct 2008 - 11:45:56

Sunderland manager Roy Keane has dismissed rumours linking him with a move for former Arsenal midfield hardman Patrick Vieira.

The 32-year-old Frenchman currently plays his football in Italy with Internazionale, but had been mentioned as a possible transfer target for the Black Cats ahead of their 1-1 draw with the Gunners.

However, Keane says he is not about to bring Vieira back to England, despite knowing all about him from several fiery clashes during the Irishman's playing career with Manchester United.

Keane said: "I haven't got a clue where this has come from. It's not fair on the club or Patrick Vieira.

"He's at a club, he is under contract and good luck to him. I am sure if you asked him, he has got no intentions of leaving Inter Milan or wherever he is at.

"If he was going to leave there, I am not sure Sunderland would be at the top of his list."
