Ki Sung-yueng: Midfielder won't be recalled from Sunderland loan

Ki Sung-yueng: Midfielder won't be recalled from Sunderland loan

Ki joined Sunderland before the close of the summer transfer window and has impressed for Gus Poyet's side in recent weeks.

The midfielder scored the winner against Chelsea in the quarter-finals of the Capital One Cup and scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot away to Everton on Boxing Day.

The South Korea international was on target again on Saturday in Sunderland's 4-1 win at Fulham which lifted Gus Poyet's side off the bottom of the table.

However, reports have claimed that Swansea could recall Ki to the Liberty Stadium this month in light of an injury crisis in Laudrup's squad.

Jose Canas was forced off in the 2-0 defeat at Manchester United to become the ninth first-team player currently unavailable to Laudrup.

The Swans boss, though, does not believe that it would be the right decision to cut short Ki's season-long stint at Sunderland.

"There is a possibility to bring him back but I don't think it is a good idea," said the Dane.

"Ki feels comfortable where he is now. If we take him back, he would not play every game. Mentally, it would be very bad for him."

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
