SUF­FER­ING SESS’ SCAN

Midweek Sport - - THURSDAY AUG 9 - By FRANK MCCAULEY

SUN­DER­LAND star Stephane Sesseg­non is to un­dergo a scan af­ter suf­fer­ing an an­kle in­jury in train­ing.

The 28-year-old Benin in­ter­na­tional is a doubt for tonight’s friendly at Derby af­ter in­jur­ing him­self yes­ter­day.

Boss Martin O’Neill is hope­ful that the prob­lem is only mi­nor and that he could yet fig­ure at Le­ices­ter on Satur­day.

He said: “Sesseg­non hurt his an­kle in train­ing and hope­fully he will be okay for Satur­day’s match.”

Sesseg­non re­turned to train­ing last week af­ter be­ing given an ex­tended break af­ter his coun­try’s World Cup qualifiers at the end of last sea­son.

He didn’t travel to Swe­den for their friendly against Hels­ing­borgs be­cause he would have had to miss a day’s train­ing to ap­ply for a visa in per­son.

The player has been a big hit on Wear­side since his £6mil­lion ar­rival from Paris St Ger­main in Jan­uary 2011, but has been linked with a move away from the club this sum­mer.

But O’Neill has said there has been no for­mal in­ter­est in him so far.
