Lamine Gassama: Sunderland looking elsehwere

Sunderland have shelved their interest in Lorient bad boy Lamine Gassama, sources have told

The 26-year-old has been linked with a potential move to Sunderland this summer after they showed an interest in the defender last January.

However, Sunderland have ended their interest in Gassama after learning of his past misdemeanours.

Gassama hit the headlines for the wrong reasons last June when he was handed a suspended two-month prison sentence and fined €5,000 euros for police assault.

Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce is now ready to switch his attentions to other targets as he looks to bring in a new right-back this summer.
