Sunderland’s chances of signing Sulley Muntari from Inter have taken a knock after it emerged the player’s wife could well prefer a move to London should her husband leave the Serie A giants.

Muntari is available for transfer at the Nerazzurri this January, but only if a deal arises with which all parties can be happy.

Sunderland boss Steve Bruce believes that the Ghana star, who has Premier League experience with Portsmouth from the 2007/08 campaign, would be a superb addition to his squad and was counting on the presence of international team-mates John Mensah and Asamoah Gyan to help persuade Muntari to join the Black Cats.

However, reports in Italy suggest that Muntari’s wife, a well known model, has expressed concerns about heading to the north east and would prefer to live in London should her husband have to leave Milan.
