Sunderland midfielder Sebastian Larsson says that he is willing to wait to speak to the club regarding his contract situation.

Sunderland midfielder Sebastian Larsson has insisted that he is willing to put contract talks with the club on hold.

The 28-year-old will come to the end of his current deal next summer, but the midfielder has claimed that securing Premier League survival takes priority over his contract situation.

"There's no problems from me because we haven't really spoken," the Shields Gazette quotes Larsson as saying.

"It's about getting the team to where it should be and making sure the club is in the Premier League for next year.

"This is a big club and then things will take care of themselves after that, but now is not the right time to be talking about it. I don't want to put any pressure on the club."

Larsson arrived at the Stadium of Light from Birmingham City in 2011.
