O'Donovan coy on loan talk

24 Jun 2008 - 17:32:46

Sunderland striker Roy O'Donovan is keen to stay at the Stadium of Light even though Dundee United reportedly want to sign him on a season-long loan.

The 22-year-old Cork-born forward only made five starts for the Black Cats last term and was expected to be ditched by boss Roy Keane this summer.

But O'Donovan told the Sunderland Echo: "As far as I'm concerned, I'm still a Sunderland player and I'm just enjoying my holidays at the moment.

"I know there was a rumour about me going to Dundee United on loan when I first came to Sunderland so maybe that's where the story has come from now.

"Nothing has been said to me about a move so I'm just looking forward to pre-season with Sunderland.

"My first season here was difficult. But I think I improved and got more accustomed to it as time went on, but next season is a big one for me.

"Hopefully I can get off on the right foot and progress nicely."
