Former Sunderland forward Dwight Yorke has thrown his hat in for the Black Cats managerial role - should David Moyes be given his marching orders this summer.

While all of the noises coming out from the Stadium of Light, and from Moyes himself, have suggested the Scot will be at the club next season, Yorke made be known he would be interested in a Wearside return should the top job become available.

Speaking in the aftermath of Moyes' men's 2-0 loss to Arsenal at the Emirates, Yorke, who spent the final three years of his career at Sunderland, told beIN Sports: "If the opportunity comes to manage such a great club as Sunderland, having played at the football club, having seen what the fans are like, and the expectation, it is a very big club.

"There's no two ways about that, it's a terrific job.

"The one thing that Sunderland have got in their favour is that every time they've been down and relegated to the Championship they have managed to bounce back straight away.

"That is a positive in itself and that is what I would probably say to them if I was given that opportunity."
