Stride Confirms - No Players Out
Steve Stride has confirmed that there will be no move for Kevin Phillips back to Sunderland despite press links.
Niall Quinn, now manager at Sunderland, has been linked to a move for his former strike partner, however Operations director Stride said:
'The situation regarding players is quite simple. No decision can be made until the appointment of a new manager.'
So Portsmouth and Spurs can forget about Gareth Barry as well!
