The Swedish international is out of contract at the end of this month and is continuing to weigh up his future. The 32-year-old suffered a disrupted season, not getting going until December because of a knee operation he underwent in the summer. He played 23 games for the Black Cats in total as they slipped out of the Premier League after a dismal campaign. Larsson is one of seven players out of contract, and his name was absent from Sunderland’s retained list, released on Friday, as a result. Larsson is understood to have been offered new terms by the club, but will wait and see what other offers he has before making a decision over his future.
