SULLEY Muntari has returned to parent club Inter Milan after Sunderland decided against completing a lucrative deal for the midfielder.

Sunderland today confirmed they will not be taking up the option in Muntari’s loan agreement to make the move a permanent one and have allowed him to return to Italy.

Under the terms of the deal, a permanent move would have been automatically triggered if Muntari had made another appearance for the Black Cats.

That would have cost Sunderland a hefty transfer fee while the 26-year-old would have become by far the highest paid player at the club.

Sunderland were not prepared to let that happen and Muntari will not feature in tomorrow’s clash with Wolves or the final day trip to West Ham.
