The striker has been linked with a summer return to Wigan Athletic, where he scored 53 goals in 153 appearances and was a firm crowd favourite.

Grigg, under contract with Sunderland, says he doesn't know where he will be playing next season.

And he went on: "I didn't intend to move, but when Wigan accepted Sunderland's offer, I agreed.

"Wigan will forever be my heart club. Maybe I'll come back someday.”

Grigg didn't rule out a move to the continent, adding: “I don't know yet how things will continue in summer.

"But of course, if there is an opportunity to move to Germany, I would definitely be interested.”
