This flop is apparently only a medical away from ending his stuttering Tottenham career!
PASCAL Chimbonda is believed to be undergoing a medical at Sunderland today ahead of a move to the Stadium of Light.
Black Cats boss Roy Keane has had a joint bid – believed to be a massive £23 milllion – accepted by Spurs for Chimbonda and team mates Teemu Tainio, Younes Kaboul and Steed Malbranque.
Chimbonda looks to be the first of the quarter to join the Wearsiders, and could be followed by Tainio, who revealed that a move to Sunderland interests him.
Kaboul is expected to make a decision on the deal today, although would prefer a move to Aston Villa or Portsmouth, while Malbranque is also attracting Villa.
It is thought that should the combined deal fall through, then Chimbonda would cost Keane around £4.9 million. (West Essex and East London Guardian )
Pascal has become something of a marked man at White Hart Lane, where his time at the club was always nearing an end when his form nosedived dramatically last season. The former Wigan man will not be missed and Juande Ramos will no doubt be delighted to have received 5m more to spend on the market. Sunderland may well be a good fit for the Frenchman, but I can’t help but feel that it is highly likely that we will hear Chimbonda moaning before the year is out and then no doubt move back to France next summer!
