AS Roma have reportedly snubbed a £5million offer from Sunderland for midfielder Michael Bradley.

The USA international has attracted the interest of Black Cats boss Paolo Di Canio, who signed fellow American Jozy Altidore earlier this summer, but Roma have turned down their advances.

It is believed the Italian club, who signed the 26-year old from Chievo Verona last summer, want around £10m if they are to sell the 80-times capped international.
