Sunderland forward Louis Saha admits that the club's record signing Steven Fletcher is the first-choice striker at the club.

Sunderland forward Louis Saha has insisted that he would have no problem in linking up with club record signing Steven Fletcher.

The 34-year-old joined Sunderland on a free transfer in the summer, and despite not yet starting a Premier League game for the club, Saha has revealed that he won't be encouraging manager Martin O'Neill to pick him after the impressive form of Fletcher.

Saha told BBC Newcastle: "I'm not really in a position to ask for anything; Fletcher is doing really well and it's only a matter of time before the team around him clicks."

On the prospect of partnering Fletcher, Saha added: "He's a very smart player so I think there's no difficulty there."

Saha is again expected to be a substitute when Sunderland visit Stoke City on Saturday.
