Richardson considering future at Sunderland

Kieran Richardson is considering his future at Sunderland.

The Daily Mail says Richardson is mulling over his Sunderland future after manager Steve Bruce admitted he would like him to continue at left-back next season.

The 25-year-old former England international, who prefers to play in the centre of midfield, was convinced by Bruce to fill in at full-back due to an injury crisis at the club earlier in the campaign.

But his impressive displays in his less favoured position have convinced Bruce it could be worthwhile continuing to deploy him there and save part of his transfer budget to strengthen other areas of his team.
