Midfielder Liam Bridcutt has admitted he is unsure if he still has a chance to play for Sunderland in the future following his loan move to Leeds United on Thursday.
The former Brighton star will be at Elland Road until at least January after he finally completed his loan move following weeks of speculation. The 26-year-old can stay in Yorkshire until the end of the campaign but he admits he is uncertain over his future at the Stadium of Light.
He has only started one game for Sunderland since Gus Poyet left the club in March and the Black Cats tried to offload him on numerous occasions in the summer.
Both Dick Advocaat and Sam Allardyce have failed to give him a sustained run in the team but the holding midfielder is determined to kick on for the Whites.
When asked about his future, he told the Shields Gazette: “I’m not too sure. I’ve not had a lot to do with Sam. Obviously he didn’t come in long ago himself.
“He’s got his own ideas of what he wants to do. At the minute, I’m not part of that. But I’m here at Leeds now until January.
“If all goes well and I get the games, and the manager is happy with me, then I’m happy to stay.”
Sam Allardyce’s men are next in action on Saturday when they face an in-form Stoke City at the Stadium of Light.
