Sunderland reject Newell's Old Boys offer for Scocco

Sunderland have rejected a bid from Newell's Old Boys for Nacho Scocco.

The Evening Chronicle says Sunderland have rejected Newell's Old Boys initial £1.75m bid for wantaway Scocco.

But Scocco remains determined to rejoin his old club, with reports in Argentina suggesting the player has already agreed a five-year contract with Newell's - although that will count for nothing unless the clubs can settle on a fee.

Sunderland are prepared to let Scocco leave just six months after he moved to Wearside, but the Black Cats are unwilling to accept any less than the £3.2m they paid Brazilian side Internacional for the player in January.
