Apparently we now hear Kone has submitted a written transfer request? . if that's true then Moyes and Short have a lot of explaining to do towards the fans as Kone has indicated he was promised a new contract at the end of last season! if this is true i'm just amazed at the TOTAL lack of ambition at this club! and the fact Moyes dosent think or identify Kone as a good enough player to keep? . tottaly ridiculous!

True however put some perspective on it stokoe. Kone still has another 3 and a half year leftnon his current contract. It is his and/ or agents greed that have pushed Sunderland into a lose/ lose corner.

Give him a contract and show the rest of the squad that player power is rife and wins or refuse him the contract and get a replacement in with the fee. Unfortunately it is easy to blame short for this and he will share the blame but sadly Kone has totally lost my respect for this.

No one is bigger than the club and we will move on from this. No footballer should think they warrant a new contract consideringnhow much money they are on on the first place. Sad times if player power trumps our club.

Moyes has said he'll be offered one on the 1st of September, whether that's good enough for Kone is still to be seen. It'd be financial suicide to offer him one during the transfer window as sign on fees usually are in the millions for player and agent. Especially suicidal if he leaves before the window closes anyway. I honestly don't understand why he was even offered one in the first place, 4 years his contract was and it was good enough for him to come last year, it does smack of greed *shugs*. We will see what we see I guess.

Strange one this? looks after Moyes interview that Kones agent is trying to get his player more wages! typical agents greed! . IMO I think that if Kone wants to remain at this club he will sign! if not good riddance! . I thought Moyes was quite honest in his Press conference! quite impressed actually!

It stinks of a greedy agent. I would kindly thank Everton for their offer, refuse it, and play Kone in the reserves. I don't think he could handle that for 3 1/ 2 years! And tell his stinking agent not to come within 20 miles of Sunderland ever again!

Safcwill if you believe the agent is to blame why would you play our best cb in reserves? Players trust their agent and will follow their advice. You can't punish Kone for doing what every other player does. Advise him to cha he his agent however. STOKOE is right if he wants to be here he will be simple as that let's just see what happens.

Agree FTM! if he wants to leave let him go! . but try and get as much for him as we can! . I still think £18 million is peanuts in the current transfer rate! I also hear he's going to be fined? which is good, shows Moyes won't accept one player is bigger than the club!

I am shocked that we are ready to accept only 18m which is a joke.

I am sick and fed up of Moyes and General Noriega facial complexion Short

The club is being run like a corner shop and Short being the recluse he is (Is he a recluse because of his bad complexion) needs to go back to Hawaii and his big council house and sell our club.

Moyes is simply not up to it as was proved by his tactical mistakes last Saturday.

he has signed two spotty faced kids from Manchester United who are way out of their class which was proved.

I hope Sunderland supporters turn against Short and being the coward / recluse he is he will sell and get rid of him and Moyes

Moyes was told to get Yedlin and Mvila but he has messed about and now he is going to sell our two centre halfs who are the bedrock of the team

This is all going to end in tears and Short needs to go NOW.

Doberman I can't understand why Moyes is trying to dismantle Big Sams team? although every new manager has his new ideas about players etc but why sell Kone and Kaboul? paticullaly when we are so short of players to start with and we are left with the likes of OShea Jones Which nobody wants and even Van Anholt under Moyes has started his season with many worrying mistakes he made last season! its a major concern he is now aware of who the good players are, and he will face the wrath of the fans if he doesn't get his act together very soon, ill give him till the end of the window to get players in but rememeber these new players have to settle in!

Your dead right lad about that. Also Provident Loans (Satsuma) are a new partner of Sunderland.

This is a company who loan £1000 and the interest is £914.90.These are poor people who take these loans so this is great publicity.

The former head barman Gary Hutchinson has negotiated this presumably with the blessing of the former male model who is as bald as a brick Martin Bain now Ceo

This is a utter disgrace just like the Mags with Wonga Wonga and again shows the idiots like Short who are running this club.

Another reason why Short is only interested in the money the Premiership gives him and NOT in the football side of the club!
