Besler: Claims English interest

The 27-year-old Sporting Kansas City centre-half impressed at this summer's finals in Brazil, starting four games for the USA.

Reports have claimed that up to ten clubs from England and Germany have expressed an interest in landing the MLS stopper, but Besler has now revealed that it is Sunderland and Fulham leading the chase.

“I know that Fulham has offered to Kansas City and I know that Sunderland put in an offer or are putting in an offer,” he told American radio station Sports Radio 810 today.

“We’re trying to get something done as soon as possible.

“It’s a situation which needs to get resolved.

“I want to be staying in Kanasa City if I’m going to stay.

“But if they’re going to sell me, then I want to know as soon as possible.

“It’s not just my decision. It’s the club’s decision if they want to sell or not. But I would definitely have an input on a team.”

Besler's current deal is due to expire in 2015.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

F365's Top Ten Defenders Of The Season

P

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
