Di Canio fury as Jack turns back on new deal in the Sun

Midweek Sport - - SPORT - By JA­SON MEL­LOR

JACK COL­BACK has left Paolo Di Canio fum­ing af­ter turn­ing down a new Sun­der­land con­tract.

The Black Cats boss is furious at be­ing forced to cash in on the home­grown star, who has been at the Sta­dium of Light since the age of 10. Hull’s for­mer Sun­der­land boss Steve Bruce is ready to launch a cut-price bid, with the Wear­siders ready to lis­ten to of­fers above £1mil­lion for Col­back who has just 12 months left on his £15,000-a-week con­tract.

Cardiff are also in­ter­ested in the 23-year-old, who has racked up al­most 150 ca­reer games since his de­but on loan at Ip­swich in 2009.

Col­back is the lat­est player to be driven out by Di Canio’s hard­line regime.

Ti­tus Bram­ble and Matt Kil­gal­lon have al­ready been shown the door, with Phil Bard­s­ley told he has no fu­ture at the club af­ter a fall-out with the no-non­sense head coach.

Skip­per Lee Cat­ter­mole and striker Stephane Sesseg­non can also leave for the right price as Di Canio over­sees a ma­jor sum­mer over­haul of his squad.
