Juhasz interested in move to Sunderland

TARGET ... Roland Juhasz.

ANDERLECHT defender Roland Juhasz has flashed a ‘come and get me’ plea to Martin O’Neill.

The Hungarian international centre-half has emerged as a potential target for Sunderland in the January transfer window.

And while keeping his options open, the 29-year-old has made it clear he would welcome a move to the Stadium of Light.

Ukrainian outfit Dnipro have also been linked with the 6ft 4in defender, who said: “I’d like to play in Western Europe, and of course Sunderland and the Premier League attracts me very much. But I wouldn’t say no to Dnipro.”

Sunderland will welcome the Hungarian’s desire to leave Anderlecht and encouragement of the Black Cats to push forward with a move which could be concluded for less than £3m.

The Wearsiders’ need for reinforcements in central defence are urgent after Carlos Cuellar joined John O’Shea and Wes Brown on the injury list.

That leaves O’Neill with just two available centre-halves ahead of this weekend’s game against West Ham – Titus Bramble and Matt Kilgallon – two players who are out of contract at the end of the season.
