Sunderland have been given permission to speak with Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes after a compensation package was agreed between the two clubs.
The Black Cats identified the 45-year-old as their number one target following the departure of David Moyes, who left the Stadium of Light following Sunderland’s relegation from the top-flight. But, Dave Cormack, the new major shareholder at Pittodrie, says the club will "move heaven and earth" to keep McInnes: "Derek is extremely happy here. It's not just down to money. He's a very astute individual." McInnes began his managerial career at St Johnstone, spending almost 4 years at McDiarmid Park before moving to Bristol City who were rooted to the bottom of the Championship. An eight-game unbeaten run saved club from relegation, however, the following year saw Bristol struggle once again, and after seven straight losses, he was sacked in January 2013. McInnes then joined Aberdeen, enjoying his most successful season to date in 2016/17, guiding the Dons to second place in the Scottish Premiership and reaching both domestic cup finals.

The David Moyes era at Sunderland has come to an abrupt end after the manager handed in his resignation on Monday.

The Black Cats were the first team relegated from the Premier League this season and finished last on just 24 points from six wins, six draws and 26 losses. After just one year, Moyes couldn't reverse the one-and-done trend after stints at Manchester United and Real Sociedad. Said chairman Ellis Short in a statement: "Having worked tirelessly throughout the campaign to avoid relegation from the Premier League, David has chosen to leave the club without compensation, which is testament to his character. In the days ahead we will take some time for reflection, and then focus on recruitment and pre-season as we prepare for our Championship campaign. We wish David well in the future."

Sunderland continue to sink after a 2-0 loss to West Brom along with a shocking Swansea win at Anfield.

With the financial situation apparently dire at the Stadium of Light this might just be the season the Black Cats can't escape the drop. Once Tony Pulis' side scored it felt almost preordained that Sunderland were going to lose. With Hull City and Swansea both showing signs of life and making new signings it could be an ugly second half of the season for Moyes and the Black Cats.

Sunderland has officially confirmed David Moyes as the club's next manager after signing him to a four-year contract.

The news comes just one day after former manager Sam Allardyce left the club after less than one year to become the head coach of the England national team. Moyes, who was sacked by Real Sociedad last season, arrives at the club following previous stints in the Premier League with Everton and Manchester United. Said the new manager: "I am delighted to have joined Sunderland. I am relishing the challenge and excited by the opportunity. I have taken over a big British club, with a great support and I’m looking forward to working in the Premier League again."

Manchester United manager David Moyes has been sacked, only 10 months after succeeding Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford.

The news had already been leaked to the UK newspapers and had spread across the internet on Monday, so this morning's official announcement is no surprise. As many had predicted, following Sir Alex proved too much for Moyes. The ex-Everton boss never looked at ease at Old Trafford and had a torrid time in the transfer market, in the media and on the pitch, guiding the team to seventh in the table with four games remaining, guaranteed to record Manchester United's lowest ever points tally in the Premier League. The Club released a short statement "to place on record its thanks for the hard work, honesty and integrity he brought to the role". Player-coach Ryan Giggs is expected to take charge of United's next game at home against Norwich on Saturday and possibly for the rest of the season, before a new manager is announced in the summer.

The internet is abuzz with "news" that a decision has been made on David Moyes' future with Manchester United and that the manager will be sacked, and may not even see out this season.

The call from the beginning was for Moyes to have time in the job, but United - despite Champions League accomplishments - have been lackluster and unmotivated too many times this season. They can still beat the teams at the bottom of the table, but haven't looked the same quality against their top-of-the-table rivals. Yesterday's 0-2 defeat at Goodison Park was a stark reminder of that, and it appears that Moyes may pay with his job.

Atletico Madrid standouts Koke and Diego Costa will not be moving to Manchester United, Arsenal or anywhere else for that matter anytime soon.

Arsenal have been linked to land a high-profile striker in January like Diego Costa, but Atleti Sporting Director Jose Luis Perez Caminero finally put all those rumors to rest. "Diego Costa has re-signed with us. He isn't thinking about leaving." When asked about possible move to Manchester United for 21-year old Spanish midfielder, Koke, he was just as certain. "Koke will be with us for many more years, I'm sure of it." David Moyes and Arsene Wenger have been remained firm that they will not make an attempt to sign any big-name targets in January, but something has to give. Wenger has lost quite a few options up top due to injury and Moyes is struggling even more just to get by.
