Gus Poyet splashed out close to £3million to lure the Argentina forward away from Internacional in January.

He arrived in England with a big reputation, but failed to live up to expectations and is still waiting for his first Sunderland goal.

It is now being suggested that he could be offloaded back to South America when the transfer window re-opens, with the 29-year-old seemingly open to the idea.

Boca Juniors are reported to be keen on offering him an escape route from the Stadium of Light, but they have been warned that they will not be allowed to break a two-and-a-half-year contract on the cheap.

Scocco’s representative Fabian Soldini told American Closs: “The only way that Scocco could be transferred to Boca is if they pay the same money that Sunderland invested in him, which would be near 5.5million dollars.

“On the other hand, the coach of Sunderland wants Scocco in his team and it is he who makes the decisions at that club.

“Taking that into account, it would be difficult for him to be transferred to an Argentinian team. But, in football, anything can happen."
