Ivan Strinic: The subject of interest from Sunderland in the past, but no deal w

The Black Cats were strongly linked with the Croatia international prior to the 2012/13 campaign getting underway.

No agreement was put in place and Strinic has remained in the Ukraine.

Speculation regarding the 25-year-old's future has now resurfaced, with it suggested that Sunderland could rekindle their interest.

Strinic's representative doubts that will be the case, with it the opinion of Tonci Martic that a switch to Russia could be on the cards.

He told tuttomercatoweb: "We received a concrete proposal from Sunderland, but Dnipro rejected the deal.

"With regards to Dinamo Moscow, there have been no formal negotiations but maybe something will change in the summer."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
