David Healy: Options are open to me for the future

I know there was a lot of discussion and debate about my club future over the last few weeks, especially with the transfer window coming to a close.

I am also aware that some are surprised that I didn’t leave Sunderland before the 5pm deadline on Tuesday.

There were a few possibilities for me, one of which was Coventry City.

I spoke to the Coventry manager Chris Coleman, but in the end I decided to stay put.

In relation to my situation at Sunderland I still have two years left on my contract and have continually said that I am happy to fight for my place. What has been forgotten about in the rush to get deals done is that the loan window opens shortly, so I have options.

For now though all my energy and focus is on Northern Ireland and our World Cup qualifying campaign.
