Report: Phil Bardsley rejects Fulham's advances

Full-back Phil Bardsley wants to remain with Sunderland amid reported interest from Fulham.

Phil Bardsley has reportedly informed Sunderland that he would rather remain with them than join Fulham.

It is believed that the West Londoners had hoped to sign the full-back in a deal worth £1m.

However, upon learning of their interest, 28-year-old Bardsley has told officials at the Stadium of Light that he would prefer to continue his career on Wearside, according to The People.

The former Manchester United defender's contract is due to expire at the end of the season, but it is thought that the deal will be extended, providing that the Black Cats retain their Premier League status.
