Adiyiah open to loan switch

Reports have suggested the Black Cats are keen on taking the AC

Milan youngster on a season-long loan. The 20-year-old was the star

of last season’s World Youth Championship, and that led to Milan

signing him. He is yet to make his debut for the Italian side but

he was part of Ghana’s World Cup squad – missing in their penalty

shoot-out defeat to Uruguay. Now Adiyiah admits he is tempted by a

loan move, but insists he is unaware of Sunderland’s interest –

which has reportedly come via international team-mate John Mensah,

who spent last season on loan at the Stadium of Light. “I am a

Milan player. It is true I want to play more games which is not

easy at a very big club for youngsters, but I will push hard”

Adiyiah told “Sunderland? I know our captain

[Mensah] played there last season, but he said nothing to me about

the club. “I heard from newspapers there are three or four clubs

interested in taking me on loan, let’s wait and see.” German side

Hoffenheim are also believed to be keen on taking him on a

season-long loan.
