Sunderland target Darron Gibson has revealed that he is ready to leave Manchester United if he does not start playing more regularly.
Skysports.com reported earlier this week that the Black Cats had launched a triple bid for Gibson and United team-mates Wes Brown and John O'Shea.
Gibson is now waiting to see whether a move materialises but insists he would have no problem making the switch to Wearside if it benefits his career.
The Republic of Ireland midfielder has previously been urged to quit Old Trafford by national team manager Giovanni Trapattoni as he remains a bit-part player under Sir Alex Ferguson.
And the 23-year-old has now indicated that it might be time for him to embark on a new challenge at the Stadium of Light.
"If Sunderland get the three of us it would be unbelievable business," he said.
"It wouldn't faze me one bit to leave, all I want is what's best for me.
"So if the best thing for me is to leave and go somewhere that I'll play every week then so be it.
"I haven't sat down with Sir Alex to talk but if it comes to me not playing as much as I'd like next season I'll have to move.
"I'm nearly 24. I'm going to have to go somewhere else if I don't start playing regularly."
