Adiyiah: Loan link
Ghana starlet Dominic Adiyiah has admitted he could be tempted by a loan move, but is unaware of Sunderland's reported interest.
Reports have suggested that Sunderland are keen on taking the AC Milan youngster on a season-long loan.
The 20-year-old was the star of last season's World Youth Championship, and this led to Milan sealing a deal for him.
He is yet to make his Milan debut, but he was part of Ghana's World Cup squad - although he had the unfortunate honour of missing in their penalty shoot-out defeat to Uruguay.
Now Adiyiah admits he is tempted by a loan move, but insists he is unaware of Sunderland's interest - which has reportedly come via international team-mate John Mensah, who spent last season on loan at the Stadium of Light.
"I am a Milan player, it is true I want to play more games which is not easy at a very big club for youngsters, but I will push hard" Adiyiah told skysports.com.
"Sunderland? I know our captain [Mensah] played there last season, but he said nothing to me about the club.
"I heard from newspapers there are three or four clubs interested in taking me on loan, let's wait and see."
German side Hoffenheim are also believed to be keen on taking him on a season-long loan.
