Sunderland boss Roy Keane is courting controversy with his interest in Cardiff City striker Michael Chopra.

The Guardian says Sunderland fans are likely to be concerned that Chopra is a target for Keane.

Chopra scored both Cardiff City goals in a 2-1 victory at the Stadium of Light last October, but Sunderland fans remember the 23-year-old more ruefully for the equaliser on the same ground for Newcastle United seven months earlier.
