Scharner rules out Sunderland

10 Jun 2009 - 07:48:59

Wigan Athletic's Paul Scharner has dismissed the idea of following former Latics boss Steve Bruce to Sunderland this summer.

The versatile 29-year-old Austria international is expected to leave Wigan in the next few months, with a number of clubs both in England and elsewhere showing an interest.

Scharner confirmed: "I have decided I want to change clubs.

"My fee is £6million and there has been interest from clubs in England and Germany, but I would prefer to stay in England.

"Tottenham, Everton and Fulham are interested in me, just like Hertha Berlin and Hamburg.

"It was a big surprise when Steve Bruce left Wigan, but I cannot see myself joining Sunderland.

"They are certainly not an improvement on Wigan. Besides, I did not get on too well with Bruce's style of play."
