Roy Keane has spoken of his admiration for Atletico Madrid forward Diego Forlan, but claims he will not contemplate summer signings until Sunderland's position in The Premier League is assured.

Keane is an admirer of a striker he played alongside at Manchester United and was linked with a bid for the Uruguayan last summer.

"We were linked with Diego last summer and as much as I think he is a top player, the priority for us is the stay in The Premier League," Keane said at a press conference on Wednesday.

"We will have a few targets who we would like to bring to the club in the summer, but it will all depend on what league we are in.

"If I think Diego is available, then maybe I would be interested."
