The Black Cats took the unusual step of confirming approaches from Aston Villa, Southampton and Middlesbrough, and it looks as though the wide man, who has been unpopular with the Stadium of Light faithful, could be set for a summer transfer.
However, the former West Brom man, who played his part in Ireland's 1-1 draw with Germany that keeps Mick McCarthy's men's hopes of reaching the knockout stages alive, is unconcerned by the talk back home.
"I will see what happens when I get home," he declared.
"I am not thinking about what I will be doing next season at the moment."
An impressive performance in the must-win final group fixture with Saudi Arabia could help Kilbane to convince his potential suitors to splash the cash during the close season.
