thumbnail Hello,

The Scottish goalkeeper believes that there is a chance that he may remain with the Black Cats, but is willing to show patience after his contract expired at the end of the season

Sunderland goalkeeper Craig Gordon maintains that there is a possibility of him remaining with the club, despite his contract having expired at the end of the season.

Gordon signed from Scottish side Hearts in 2007 for £9 million, in what was a British record fee for a keeper at the time.

However, though the Edinburgh-born shot-stopper came highly recommended, he has failed to meet expectations as a result of consistent injuries.

“I’m out of contract now but there is nothing on the table as yet,” he told Sky Sports.

“It’s just a case of seeing what’s out there and making the right choice for me when the offers come up.”

"[Re-signing is] still a possibility. The manager says he likes me very much and would like to do something"

Despite being effectively released by Sunderland, Gordon is still very much open to the prospect of re-signing for the club.

"That's still a possibility. The manager has spoken to me, he says he likes me very much and would like to do something," he revealed.

“The door is still open there, although there is nothing on the table yet. At the moment it’s just waiting to see what comes [in] over the summer.”

The former Scotland international is confident that Martin O’Neill would like to retain him but is fully aware that he would face stiff competition to get back into the first team.

He continued: "I think they would ideally like to do something, but with the three goalkeepers the manager has at his disposal right now, something would need to change for me to get back in there.”
