PUBLISH: Dwight Yorke keen to stay on at Sunderland

Trinidad & Tobago striker Dwight Yorke is in the twilight of his career and his contract with relegation battlers Sunderland runs out at the end of the season. But the former Manchester United and Blackburn Rovers striker says that he is keen to stay on at the Stadium of Light and shall do all he can to impress the Black Cats in the next few months to earn a new contract.

Yorke remarks:

Who knows what is in store for me next year? My contract runs out at the end of the season and I will have to sit and see what happens.

In the meantime, I have just got to keep trying to do my best for Sunderland Football Club until the end of the season.

I will keep going until the moment comes when I cannot help the team or contribute to the team in any way. Then I will walk away.

Right now I am still enjoying the game, even though I would like to win a few more matches, which would make life a lot easier for all of us.

Yorke joined Sunderland in the summer of 2006 and has a stringed together a number of decent performances for the Premiership strugglers. Yet he is well past his prime but we all shall remember him as an exceptional player.
