Sunderland boss Bruce rethinks bid for Hamburg defender Demel

Sunderland are reviving their interest in Hamburg defender Guy Demel.

The Daily Mail says Sunderland manager Steve Bruce ruled out a fresh move for Demel the other week after being snubbed by the Ivory Coast international on previous occasions.

However, Bruce is having a re-think with the financial package decent for a 30 year old right back with such experience.

Bruce said he was not keen on signing any more African players but despite 26 caps for the Ivory Coast, Demel was born in France and has spent most of his career there and in Germany with Dortmund and Hamburg.

QPR manager Neil Warnock would also like Demel but may struggle to match the wages on offer elsewhere.
