Saha to leave Sunderland

French striker Louis Saha has been told that he begin to search for work away from the Stadium of Light, according to Sunderland manager Martin O'Neill.

Saha, 34, arrived at Sunderland in the summer after being released by Tottenham but has found playing time hard to come by.

"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."
