Gordon: How could you reject Sunderland?

Craig Gordon says players are mad if they turn down Sunderland.

Black Cats boss Roy Keane has suffered rejection from Portsmouth pair Younes Kaboul and David Nugent, but Gordon says: "Sunderland was the only team I spoke to.

"For me, this was the right club to join at the right time and I've never looked back.

"You don't get many chances to sign for a club as big as Sunderland and I took the chance when it was offered. But everybody is different.

"Other people have decided not to come here and gone elsewhere instead. For some of them it worked out - but for others, it didn't."
