Sunderland boss Roy Keane has passed on signing Roma defender Sammy Kuffour.

"We've had him over and had a look at him, but he's not one that we'll be taking any further," Keane told the Sunderland Echo.

"You're always looking to strengthen your squad and we'll be looking to bring two or three more in before the transfer deadline, but Sami Kuffour won't be one of them."
