French striker Louis Saha has been told that he can leave Sunderland, according to manager Martin O'Neill.
Sunderland striker Louis Saha prepares to shoot during the Premier League match against Manchester City at the Etihad stadium on October 6, 2012. Sunderland manager Martin O'Neill has told Saha he can leave the Stadium of Light.
The former Manchester United player, 34, arrived at the Stadium of Light in the close season after being released by Tottenham Hotspur but has only been used as a substitute.
"We have told Louis he is free to speak to other clubs and to leave if he can fix himself up somewhere," O'Neill told local newspaper the Shields Gazette.
"We have come to an agreement whereby we will cancel the remainder of his contract, shake hands and go our separate ways."
O'Neill also suggested that the France international could opt for a move to South Africa.
