Sulley Muntari’s future is expected to be settled in the coming week as a possible return to the English Premiership inches much closer.
The agent of the Ghana international, Fabien Piveteau says Sunderland and West Ham are the only English sides to have lodged offers for the Inter Milan player.
Sunderland, according to Piveteau have emerged as favourites to sign Muntari who submitted a transfer request at Inter Milan earlier this month.
“There is just Sunderland and West Ham, nobody else is in for him,” he told skysports.com.
Piveteau also dismissed claims that Muntari preferred a move to the capital, adding: “That is not true, indeed if everything is sorted out with Sunderland he will be going there.
“We hope to have everything sorted shortly, maybe by Tuesday.
“He knows Sunderland is a good club, possibly not the biggest but he wants to be playing football.
“The other Ghana players at Sunderland have told him about the club which has obviously played a part.”
Whilst Inter Milan want to sell Muntari, it is believed he will move on an initial loan with a view to a permanent deal.
