Sunderland want Liverpool to help with Ngog wages

Sunderland are baulking at the personal demands of Liverpool striker David Ngog.

The Journal says the Frenchman was due to receive a hefty pay hike if he stayed at Liverpool this season and Sunderland are unwilling to match that sum.

Given the size of his pay rise, it is little wonder Liverpool have agreed to sell him as part of the £20m deal that took Jordan Henderson to Merseyside.

But the deal could collapse unless Liverpool are willing to help with the cost of his wages or reduce the fee so the striker can be given a lump sum up front to persuade him to accept the terms on offer on Wearside.

Talks are set to continue in the coming days, although the Sunderland hierarchy are confident the 22-year-old will sign for them by the start of pre-season training next month.
