Sunderland keen on Spartak Moscow's Kovac

Spartak Moscow midfielder Radoslav Kovac is being linked with Sunderland.

Spartak Moscow midfielder Radoslav Kovac is being linked with Sunderland.

The midfielder spent the second half of last season on-loan at West Ham but the Hammers have opted not to sign the 29-year-old for the reported £4m asking price.

Kovac is now being touted around Europe and despite interest from German side Hanover, Kovac hopes for a return to the Premier League.

"In principle, I wouldn't object to going to Hanover, but I would prefer to stay in England where there is also interest from another Premier League club," he said.

"I'm on holiday in Prague and my contract with Spartak requires me to return to Moscow at the end of June but perhaps by that time my future will be more certain."
