The agent of David Moberg Karlsson claims his client is looking to make a permanent move away from Sunderland.
The 20-year-old winger only moved to the Stadium of Light in the summer of 2013, penning a four-year contract upon his arrival from IFK Gothenburg.
He caught the eye during pre-season, but was restricted to just one first team appearance in the Capital One Cup during the early stages of the 2013/14 campaign.
Karlsson was then allowed to link up with Kilmarnock on a three-month loan, but again found game time hard to come by.
The youngster is now eager to kick-start his career and feels he requires a switch away from Sunderland in order to make that happen.
Karlsson’s representative Per Jonsson said in The Journal: “What David wants is to find a club that would have him as they see him, as the offensive player he is.
“The problem lies in that Sunderland must take a loss. They do not want to sell him out (cheaply).
“Of course, he is expensive. What he’s worth, I would not go into.
“But if you buy a sofa for 10,000 Krona you do not put it out for 300 Krona a few weeks later. Everything is in Sunderland’s hands.
“We can get a loan, but we’re not so keen on it. I do not think David wants to be loaned out again.
“We want to find a permanent solution so David gets peace and quiet for a while.”
Jonsson added: “He wants lira. However, no Italian club is interested in David when they have not seen him play senior football.
“He needs a league where he gets space, football that suits him.”
