Sunderland are eyeing former Manchester United manager David Moyes as a possible replacement for Sam Allardyce as his move to become the next England boss edges closer.
The club revealed earlier today that Allardyce, who managed to avoid relegation with the Black Cats last season, has been granted permission to speak to the FA about their current vacancy.
The England job has been available since Roy Hodgson resigned moments after England’s humiliating defeat to Iceland during Euro 2016.Allardyce previously applied for the England job in 2006 before the FA appointed Steve McClaren.
In the wake of Big Sam’s England talks, Sunderland have sounded out former Everton and Manchester United manager David Moyes as a potential replacement.Moyes has been out of work since being sacked by Spanish side Real Sociedad after just a year at the club.
If any interaction with Moyes fails to develop, the reports suggest Sunderland chief executive Martin Bain could look toward Burnley boss Sean Dyche or former Manchester United star Ryan Giggs.
