Sunderland AFC manager hunt RECAP: Wigan manager 'keen' as ex-Newcastle boss makes 'contact'
According to Stewart Donald, takeover talks remain ongoing as Sunderland hunt for Jack Ross’ replacement.
The Scot was dismissed earlier this week after a poor start to this season’s League One campaign while a trio of US investors are still in talks over a potential takeover of the North East club.
Donald is expected to make a further update on the takeover situation later this week.
Paul Cook, Daniel Stendel and Gareth Ainsworth have emerged as early front-runners for the job with the bookies.
