Deal or no deal: Palace have yet to make an offer to trialist Owusu-Abeyie

English side Sunderland could hijack Crystal Palace’s bid for Quincy Owusu-Abeyie as the latter are dithering in offering the Ghanaian winger a contract.

Former Arsenal winger Owusu-Abeyie has been on trial with Premier League new boys Palace, but is yet to be offered a contract.

Now, the Black Cats’ manager Paolo Di Canio is weighing up a move to bring the well-travelled Ghana international to Wearside.

The 27-year-old, who was loaned out at Birmingham, Cardiff and Portsmouth during a three-year stint with the Gunners, has been told he can leave his current club, Greek giants Panathinaikos.

This means he will join any club on a free transfer.

Some clubs in Spain, Turkey and France are reported to be keen on signing him but the Ghanaian wants to stay in England.
