No Tigers transfer for Chopra

06 Aug 2008 - 15:32:35

Sunderland boss Roy Keane has dismissed rumours linking former Newcastle United forward Michael Chopra with a move to Hull City but has admitted Rade Prica could be heading back to Scandinavia.

Twenty-four-year-old ex-Cardiff City hot-shot Chopra scored six goals in 34 appearances for the Black Cats last term but is likely to struggle for a starting spot this season following Keane's purchase of El-Hadji Diouf.

When asked if Hull had made an enquiry for Chopra, Keane told Sky Sports News. "No. Nobody from Hull's been in touch with me."

However, Sweden international Prica could be heading out of the Stadium of Light, with Keane adding: "There are one or two Scandinavian clubs speaking to Rade and we'll look at that.

"We've had one or two calls about some of our players in the last few days and I think there'll be one or two of our players moving out, even if they're on loan.

"That's something we have to look at because we have a decent number of players and, as a professional footballer, you've got to look to be playing games, so there are options that we'll put to the players.

"But the bottom line is if they want to go or sit here and pick up their money."
