For a few minutes there, rumours were wildly circulating on Twitter that Sunderland were going to make a bid for Charles N'Zogbia. They were going to pay actual money to take N'Zogbia off of our wage bill. I don't begrudge N'Zogbia his contract (it was, after all, the club's fault for signing) but getting it gone would be a nice little piece of business.
Unfortunately, those links have been pretty thoroughly refuted now. Here's what one Sunderland beat writer had to say on the issue:
Everybody relax. Am told there's nothing in the N'Zogbia rumour. #safc— James Hunter (@JHunterChron) February 1, 2016
And then a few minutes later came this follow-up:
That's yer lot, folks. #safc's deadline day is done— James Hunter (@JHunterChron) February 1, 2016
So N'Zogbia doesn't look to be going anywhere right now. Or at least he doesn't look to be headed to Sunderland. And with fewer than 20 minutes left in the window, I can't imagine him leaving.
