Sunderland chairman hopeful of O'Donovan deal

Sunderland chairman Niall Quinn remains hopeful of winning the race for Cork City striker Roy O'Donovan.

The 21-year-old Ireland B international appears to be on the brink of a move to Sunderland's Premier League rivals Fulham.

But Quinn told BBC Radio Five Live last night: "The ball's still up in the air.

"Roy (Keane) has expressed a keen interest and from what I've read the player is interested.

"But we respect Cork City and know the player is under contract."
