SESSEGNON WILL STAY

Sunderland forward Stephane Sessegnon has had a great season for the club in the Premier league, which has in turn led to numerous reports linking him with a move abroad.

However, the 27-year-old has now said that he wants to stay at Sunderland and honour his contract because he still has a lot of work to do. The forward recently was voted as the fans’ Player of the Year, and the award was presented to him on Monday. Recently, there has been reports linking him with a move to French club Paris St Germain, who are currently managed by former Chelsea and AC Milan manager Carlo Ancelotti.

The Benin international has been a huge success at the stadium of light ever since moving to the club a few seasons ago. He has been a first-team regular under Steve Bruce and continues to do so under Martin O’Neill as well. Speaking on the occasion of receiving the award, the forward said that he wanted to stay at Sunderland, despite rumours linking him with a move abroad. Sunderland manager Martin O’Neill is expected to make vital changes to the club in the summer in order to be free of relegation troubles next season. However, Stephane Sessegnon has been told he will play a major part next season.

“I have got no problem with life here, and it’s always good news to hear that the manager wants to keep you. I’m aware of the speculation, but I can’t do anything about it. As I have said before, I don’t feel that my work here is finished. It’s true that when I first came here, it was hard to get used to the style of play. But now I like the Premier League and I think I have improved. I’m playing for a team who like to play football, with great fans,” said Sessegnon.
