Quinn keen on Toon old boy

Recommended Posts

New Sunderland manager Niall Quinn has offered Robbie Elliott the chance to remain in the North East after allowing the defender to train at The Stadium of Light.


The former Newcastle defender, who can operate at both full back and in a central role, was offered a new contract to remain at St James' Park but rejected it in the pursuit of more regular playing time.


Elliott pitched up at Leeds earlier in the summer but failed to land a deal but with Sunderland in need of a left back following Julio Arca's switch to Middlesbrough and injury to George McCartney, he could fare more favourably at the Black Cats.


Meanwhile, Andy Welsh is to be sidelined for at least the next four weeks after injuring his ankle in a pre-season friendly at Shelbourne.


The pacey wide man lasted just five minutes before hobbling off and will now miss the start of the campaign.


''Andy has suffered ankle ligament damage but it's not major,'' physio Peter Friar told the club's official website.


''His ankle is black and blue and we expect him to be out for between four and six weeks.''
