Writing on twitter, he said: "Lot of questions to answer for Sunderland fans.

"I will try to answer them in the next few days through the official media and also fan groups etc.

"It will be a regular thing so we can keep good communication. Ask anything but I can't answer all on social media just not enough time - sorry,"

One of Donald's first tasks will be to appoint a manager who will oversee one of the busiest summers in the club's history.
