Sunderland are ready to act quickly in their bid to replace new England manager Sam Allardyce, with former Manchester United boss David Moyes set to take the reigns in the North East according to The Telegraph.
The Wearside outfit have seen their manager ensnared by the national team, with the veteran coach’s exploits in keeping the Black Cats in the Premier League last season coming back to haunt the club.
England’s poor Euro 2016 campaign saw Roy Hodgson resign and Allardyce has been handed the Three Lions job as a result.
Moyes has been out of work since being sacked by Spanish side Real Sociedad but will bring a wealth of experience to the Stadium of Light if appointed.
The report suggests that Sunderland want to move quickly to hire the former United boss and will give the Scotsman the green light to bring new players to the club straight away.
