Agent admits Mensah keen on Sunderland stay

The agent of John Mensah says the Lyon defender wants a permanent deal at Sunderland.

The Ghana defender's agent, Fabien Piveteau, has revealed that Mensah has his heart set on staying at the Stadium of Light beyond the expiry of his season-long loan from Lyon.

Piveteau told the Sunderland Echo: "John definitely wants to stay. He wants to be at Sunderland very much.

"He likes the club, he loves the atmosphere of the crowd and the supporters and he sees Sunderland as his future if they want him to stay.

"It is a loan deal but he has always wanted to stay.

"There have been no discussions yet between the manager and John but they have to take up an option before May 30 if they want to keep him, so we will see what happens."
