Fletcher uncertain over future

Striker Steven Fletcher believes his Sunderland career is all but over and admits he is unsure where he will be playing his club football next season.

The 29-year-old started just 11 games in the Premier League last season before being loan out to Marseille for the second half of the campaign.

"I don't actually know what my situation is now. My contract is up so I am currently looking for a team," he told reporters.

"I think that (Sunderland) chapter is over with. I enjoyed my time there but obviously I went out on loan.

"There have been a few people speaking to me and stuff but until there is actually an offer right in front of me I am not going to take anything for granted. I am training hard and staying fit."

Fletcher has long been linked with a move back to Scotland to join Celtic, but he revealed he is yet to have any contact with the Scottish champions.

"I don't know, they obviously have a new manager (Brendan Rodgers) so that is up to him," the forward added. "But I haven't had any contact with Celtic.

"I know everyone likes to think I have, even in recent times when I have been linked with them there has never been any solid connection with me and them.

"I am going to take myself away with my family and relax a little while before I start thinking about anything else."
