The 28-year-old joined Sunderland in January from Brazilian outfit Internacional for just over £3million.

Scocco, though, has struggled to make an impact on Gus Poyet's first-team, and that has lead to speculation that he could be heading for a quick return to South America.

However, Scocco insists he is not even thinking about leaving the Stadium of Light.

"I have not considered the possibility of returning to Argentina but a return to Argentina is always in my plans, Newell's are my priority there, but let's see," he told Argentine radio show America & Closs.

"I am under contract with Sunderland, when the season is over I'll talk with the board and the staff and see what I'll do.

"I came willing to play, this is why I want to talk with the board but I am a Sunderland player, I have two more years of contract here."

Scocco admits it has been hard not being a first-team regular - as he is yet to start a league match for the club.

"I am not playing often due to manager's decision, this happens in football," he said.

"This is the first time I am fighting against relegation and it is very painful. This is very stressful, but I want to play."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
