Waghorn seeks resolved future

Waghorn seeks resolved future

Sunderland striker Martyn Waghorn has revealed that he would prefer to have his future settled permanently, and is not seeking another loan move away from the Stadium of Light this summer.

Waghorn enjoyed a superb year with Leicester in the Championship, filling the void of Matty Fryatt to hit 12 goals as the Foxes made the play-offs.

But a loan move is not high on his list of priorities for the forthcoming season.

'I am going to go back to Sunderland for pre-season and work hard, and then see what happens and see what offers come in. I am going to play it by ear and work hard wherever I go,' he said.

'I am not saying I won't come on loan again but I want to settle down somewhere and get a regular spot.

'If it means going out on loan again, I would be a little bit disappointed. But, if I get a permanent move or stay at Sunderland, I just want to stay at one place and get my head down, and push on from there.'

Nigel Pearson is undoubtedly keen to secure the services of Waghorn for next season, but the young striker is understandably eager to fight for a place with hometown club Sunderland.

Waghorn admitted earlier in the season however, that a return to the Walkers would still be favourable should Steve Bruce feel his future lies away from the Black Cats.

Bruce's dealings in the transfer market are set to determine the future of the 20-year-old, who could find first team opportunities limited should his manager add significant firepower to his strike force this summer.
