Keane Keen To Keep Kids

United defenders Jonny Evans and Danny Simpson enjoyed a great season on loan at Sunderland and Roy Keane would love to have them at his disposal in the Premiership, too.

Since Roy Keane's appointment, Sunderland took the Championship by storm, as the club have won the title despite starting the season with four defeats.

Former Manchester United striker Dwight Yorke played a great part and Reds loanees Evans and Simpson excelled, too, with both deemed as bright prospects for the future. No wonder Keano wants to keep them.

'I have to say they are two top lads and it would be fantastic if we could get them next season,' said Roy. 'But ultimately they are Manchester United players and there is no getting away from that, we knew that when we took them.

'It is has been a win-win situation for everybody. It has been a great experience for the two lads to come here as I am not sure they would have played many first-team games at United.

'They have come to Sunderland, they have played regular first-team football, they have got used to playing in front of big crowds, and our fans are very demanding.

'If they make it at United, they will find exactly the same, so it has been a fantastic deal for both clubs and for both players. Jonny and Danny have been absolutely fantastic and a credit to themselves.'

Well, it's clear that their future depends on our summer transfer activity. That is to say, if we sell Silvestre and Heinze (or O'Shea or Brown), then it's likely they will get the chance to continue their improvement at Old Trafford. If no defender departs, they can return to Keano's team - and that'd be also great for them so they have very little to lose.
