Sessegnon: Has been in great form this season
O'NEILL: SESSEGNON WILL STAY
Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill has rubbished speculation linking star striker Stephane Sessegnon with a summer move away from the Stadium of Light.
The Benin international has attracted interest from a variety of clubs abroad as well as in the Premier League - but O'Neill is confident of keeping hold of one of his prize assets despite reports he is unhappy on Wearside.
"He's playing brilliantly," O'Neill said. "I've read he's unhappy the whole time, he couldn't be happier believe it or not. I don't think he can play like that if he's unhappy.
"He's in great form and I'm sure I won't stop the speculation no matter what I try.
"We want to keep him at the football club because he's been pretty brilliant, and I really couldn't say much more than that."
One of the clubs rumoured to be chasing Sessegnon's signature is his former club Paris St Germain, who sold him to Sunderland for £6m in January 2011.
