Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill admits Kieran Richardson is likely to leave.

Queens Park Rangers and West Ham United are both said to be keen on the 27-year-old England international.

"Kieron came to see me a while ago in the last transfer window. For family issues and things, he thought there maybe needed a change," said O'Neill.

"No-one has come in and made an offer. That, though, does not mean there is nothing happening, I just don't know.

"But if he performs like he did against Arsenal, I would like to keep him."
