'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Should We Re-Call Ki From His Sunderland Loan?

Should Swansea City recall Ki Sung Yueng from his loan spell at Sunderland?

The South Korean midfielder has made quite an impact with the Black Cats since his loan move up North back in August and could play a vital role in their survival bid.

"It's a no brainer for me,recall him. Why help a relegation rival by loaning them one of your biggest assets"
The 24 year-old won a penalty and converted the spot kick to score his first Premier League goal to give Sunderland a massively important 1-0 win at in-form Everton.

Manager Gus Poyet has praised Ki and hopes to keep him at the Stadium of Light:

'It is still early doors and I don't know how expensive he is. But we will see. He plays the type of football that I really admire.

'He has the ability to pass the ball with just one touch and change from one side to the other, or run with the ball and have a shot with either foot.

'If he believes that he can do a bit of the work the other way, the defensive way, he is a player who can give us the lot.'

Poyet also recently told Sky Sports that he'll change Ki's role at the club, and move him further forward in midfield.

'We had a chat with Ki. He prefers to play in front of the back four, but of course you need to work a lot defensively, and he's not that type of player,' said Poyet.

'So we said to him that we'd give him a chance to play forward. He can pass the ball, he's not the type of player where the ball is flying over his head, it could be interesting for us if he plays there again, it could be an option for us.'

Talking about making the loan move permanent, Poyet added:

'It's not in our hands, at the moment. It's up to Swansea and not up to us.'

The 6m signing from Celtic is on a season-long loan to Sunderland but it's believed that he can be recalled in January.

Question is, should we bring him back to the Liberty Stadium to give Laudrup further midfield options? After all, the Swans boss likes to rotate his side during busy periods and we'll soon be having FA Cup and Europa League matches to play in early 2014.

Answer to that question?..........YES! We need quality badly.

Might as well bring him back, if we're in relegation battle then we don't want our rivals having our player who's making an impact! makes no sense
We could definitely do with him back! We're struggling for strength in depth and he is a quality player! So hope we have him back for the second half of the season for Europe (however long we are in it) and realistically, to help us stay in the Premier League
