Sunderland boss Paolo di Canio has blanked questions over the future of Phil Bardsley.

Di Canio refused to comment on the future of Bardsley who has been suspended by the club after mocking Sunderland's opening day defeat to Fulham last week.

He said: "I've got nothing to say, because there is a process for this. We will see what is going on."
