Craig Gardner insists that he is happy at Sunderland after a difficult few months trying to settle in the North East.

Craig Gardner has admitted that he would like to remain with Sunderland next season, despite concerns over the midfielder's future.

Reports have emerged in recent months suggesting that the 25-year-old could make the switch to West Bromwich Albion after struggling to settle in the North East.

"Hopefully I will be here next season," Gardner told the Northern Echo. "I have a contract, so why not? I really am happy at Sunderland and feel as if I'm playing some good football.

"The fans have been great with me and hopefully they can see I give everything when I go out on to the pitch. I could have scored a couple more goals, but it's my first season up here and your first season is always difficult."

Gardner moved to the Stadium of Light from Birmingham City last year.
