Real Sociedad boss David Moyes has turned down the opportunity to return to the Premier League with Sunderland, according to reports from the Mirror.
The Black Cats are now manager-less following the departure of Dick Advocaat from the helm, and the Wearside club have made offers to several managers who could be keen on the position.
However, former Manchester United gaffer Moyes has rejected the proposal, despite sending assistant Jimmy Lumsden to take a look at the Stadium of Light.
It seems that Moyes is keen on finishing his task of pushing Sociedad into the top half of the La Liga table, and any return to England will probably have to wait until the end of the campaign.
This will leave Sunderland looking at other candidates, with Sam Allardyce, Sean Dyche, and even Nigel Pearson all on their shortlist.
The Black Cats are currently struggling at 19th on the table, tied with bottom place Newcastle United with 3 points apiece.
