Blackburn's McCarthy open to Sunderland move

Blackburn Rovers striker Benni McCarthy admits he's interested in a move to Sunderland.

"They're not really happy times for me but it's still alright," McCarthy told "It's frustrating if you work hard especially with all the rumours going on and then you don't play.

"Sunderland's interest is very much for real and I'm looking to see in the next week what's going to happen because you know I'm 31 in November so sitting on the bench or not playing is not an option for me.

"If I can't make the starting line-up at Blackburn then I'm wasting time."
