Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill was coy over his pursuit of Swansea City striker Danny Graham after last night's 0-0 draw.

His appearance as a second-half substitute was booed by sections of the home crowd, a reflection of his Geordie roots and his comments about their club in a fanzine interview.

But O'Neill said with a smile: "I think he is himself reportedly a Newcastle fan, so I think the reaction to that was probably quite a natural reaction.

"But Bob Stokoe was looking down at him."
