Plymouth boss locked in Sunderland talks for Anderson

Plymouth boss Paul Sturrock was on Wearside yesterday for talks with Sunderland over a new loan deal for defender Russell Anderson.

"I would like to keep him and he has been up there today talking to Roy Keane," Sturrock told the club's official website.

"It is a difficult one for him because his wife and two kids are up there. He has trained with Sunderland today and, all being well, he will come back down on Wednesday, so at least he has had a couple of days with his family.

"He has been dedicated to the cause. For a loan player to commit himself, stay on his own down here and give us the performances he has, shows you the model professional the boy is.

"I know what it is like when your wife and kids are up there, so he has that to mull over in his mind."
