Eintracht Frankfurt defender Bastian Oczipka has rejected interest from Sunderland.

Sunderland have made an offer for the German.

"I have been told about that offer," said Oczipka, quoted in the Offenbach Post.

"Still, this is not an issue for me. I have two more years of my contract with Eintracht Frankfurt.

"Financially, it is a lucrative offer but does not appeal in a sporting sense.

"We are a side going to play in the Europa League this season. Therefore I am not interested in just ticking over at a mid-table team in England."
