Cats boss keen to keep heroes

Onuoha, on loan from Manchester City, put the Black Cats on the way
to victory over Chelsea with a stunning individual goal on the
stroke of half-time in Sunday’s Premier League clash in west
London. Asamoah Gyan added a second early in the second-half before
man-of-the-match Welbeck, on loan from Manchester United, grabbed a
third with three minutes left. Bruce’s side dominated the game and
could have won by a bigger margin as Chelsea lost their first home
game since last March and suffered their heaviest top flight defeat
at Stamford Bridge since 2002. Now Bruce hopes to open talks about
signing the pair on a permanent basis when the season ends. “Danny
has produced very well and played well,” said Bruce. “The sad thing
for me is how much will it cost now to buy them? “They’re two loan
players who have done fantastically well. They’ve got plenty of
time. We’d love them to stay. “We’ve got them for a year and we’ll
speak to the respective clubs nearer the time. They’re exactly what
we’re looking for. They are young, energetic and desperate to play.
“But all round, the team produced a fantastic performance. I hope
people talk about Sunderland rather than Chelsea’s poor
performance. Apart from the debacle against Newcastle a few weeks
ago, we’ve been terrific.”
