Sunderland midfielder Tobias Hysen has decided to return to Sweden because he is due to become a father in January.

Left-footed Hysen, 25, will most likely move to Gothenburg for around £950,000.

"People probably think I'm stupid, but I have thought this through", he told SPORT-Expressen.

"I am in England now and I have met with Sunderland representatives, but I cannot comment on the negotiations at the moment.

"I have told Sunderland that I wish to go home [but] it is not something I decided on recently: I have thought about it for a while now.

"I will be a father in January and England is not the right place for us as a family."

Hysen added that he will cherish his time in the north east.

"It's been great to play in England and I am still as energetic and ambitious as before," he said. "I will not calm down in any way."

Gothenburg sporting director Hakan Mild said of the situation: "Obviously we are hoping for a quick solution."

Winger Hysen - son of former Liverpool defender Glenn - scored four times in 26 appearances for Sunderland but Scotland youngster Ross Wallace was often preferred to the former Hacken and Djurgardens man.
