David Healy's agent insists his client is not clamouring for a New Year departure from Sunderland.

The Black Cats striker has been strongly linked with a move to SPL giants Rangers.

He has failed to start a single Premier League game for the North East outfit since joining them from Fulham at the start of the season.

Reports had suggested that Gers boss Walter Smith was lining up the Northern Ireland international as a possible replacement for Kris Boyd, who is poised to join Birmingham.

However, Healy's representative Stephen Hughes claims there is no substance to those rumours.

"I have heard nothing. We are not engineering anything," he said.

"I spoke to Sunderland earlier this week and nothing was mentioned."
