SUNDERLAND TO OFFLOAD ALTIDORE

Sunderland flop Jozy Altidore is on the verge of a return back to the MLS, with Toronto his most likely destination.

The American striker has managed just 2 goals in 70 games for the Black Cats following his $6.5 million move from AZ Alkmaar 18 months ago, and coach Gus Poyet is looking to take him off the wage bill at the Stadium of Light.

The 25 year-old has been in good form for the USA, scoring 12 times in his last 24 appearances, and those international performances have sparked interest from Toronto FC, as well as his former club New York Red Bulls.

It seems as though Sunderland’s asking price for the striker, along with his wage demands, have put off the Red Bulls, however the Canadian franchise are still holding out hope of doing a deal for the former Hull City, Villarreal and Alkmaar man.

The Toronto Sun newspaper described the possible transfer as ‘one of Major League Soccer’s biggest off-season signings.’
