Sunderland manager Roy Keane is a busy man these days. His side is struggling for survival in the English Premier League and the former Republic of Ireland is eager to splash out money and buy the players that he deems would stave off relegation at least for this season.
Goal.com has reported that Keane has decided to sign young French striker Jean-Yves Mvoto from Paris Saint Germain. Mvoto is 19 years of age and doesn’t have a professional contract with the French club and has been given the green signal to leave. PSG will be given £300,000 as compensation for the loss of the player and will be will benefit from a future transfer fee via a sell-on clause.
So is this the right decision by Keane? There’s no denying that Sunderland need reinforcement in January to avoid the drop at the end of the season but should Keane rely on someone like Mvoto who even in his own nation is not too well known? Shouldn’t he go for experience and proven quality?
