The 45-year-old is one of the Black Cats' top targets to replace David Moyes, impressing after securing three consecutive second place finishes in the top tier of the Scottish game.

His Aberdeen side have the chance to land their second trophy of his reign when they take on Celtic in the Scottish Cup final at Hampden Park tomorrow.

McInnes insists he is unfazed by the speculation and focusing on the showdown with Brendan Rodgers.
