Following the goal, Bellion found himself a first team regular at Sunderland, although was unable to save them from relegation with the second lowest (behind 2005-06) Premier League points tally ever. Towards the end of the season, Bellion attracted interest from Manchester United, and angered many fans by going AWOL to France at a time when the Black Cats needed him most. Upon returning, Bellion claimed he had been visiting his sick grandmother, and made himself temporarily unavailable for selection, claiming he was "mentally unfit" to be playing in a relegation battle. At the time, speculation was rife that Bellion had been "tapped up" by United, although Manchester United and Bellion's agent firmly denied this. Despite this, Bellion agreed a move to the "Red Devils" after his contract expired in June 2003, although the transfer was not without controversy. As Bellion was under the age of 23, Sunderland were eligible for compensation, although a fee of £2m, rising to £3m depending on appearances, was agreed out of court. The fee was agreed on the basis that Sunderland chairman Bob Murray signed a "confidentiality agreement" and did not launch a complaint against Manchester United over the alleged "tapping up" of Bellion, after former Arsenal vice-chairman David Dein claimed Bellion had been offered to Arsenal by his agent illegally[citation needed], and that Manchester United had been paying for Bellion's mobile phone bills whilst still at Sunderland.
