Sunderland midfielder Tainio unsure of Birmingham future

Sunderland midfielder Teemu Tainio admits he doesn't know where his future lies.

He hasn't had much opportunity to push his claims for a permanent deal at Birmingham City and, although he has a year left on his Sunderland contract, he appears to be surplus to requirements in the north-east.

"All the staff at Birmingham have been very supportive and they understood that the operation was the only option so I think everybody is glad that I'm fit and ready to play,'' he told the Birmingham Mail.

"I haven't spoken with Sunderland about my future. I want to get fit and then maybe we can talk business."
