Inter Milan midfielder Alfred Duncan is aware of being linked with Sunderland. The 20 year old Ghanian said: "I am flattered by the interest of Sunderland. I know the scout of Sunderland has been watching me.
"To be honest, though, nothing has been done and Inter will have a big say if I leave Inter or not.
"Fans compare me with (Michael) Essien and if I can have half of his career I will be very happy.
"He is the best midfielder ever in Ghana. He played box-to-box, could break play up and could dictate play at the same time."
