Sunderland calm over Cana talks with Arsenal boss Wenger

Sunderland are calm over reports linking captain Lorik Cana with Arsenal.

The Journal says Sunderland will be relaxed about internet reports claiming that Cana is 'in talks' with Arsene Wenger about a possible move to Arsenal.

The claims were given some credence because they originated from a talk-in given by Cana at the American University in his native Kosovo a few weeks ago - and were backed up by YouTube footage of him in a question-and-answer session.

But Cana's reference to 'talks' with Wenger was merely an acknowledgement of a relationship that has roots long before he signed for Sunderland.

The midfielder had a trial with Arsenal before signing for the Black Cats and there is nothing suspect in Wenger staying in touch with the Sunderland captain, who has never been less than fully committed to the long-term project at the Stadium of Light.
