Sunderland will find out on Thursday if they need to replace Sam Allardyce as the FA closes in on confirming the new England manager.
The FA has interviewed a number of possible candidates for the England manager’s role after the departure of Roy Hodgson following the poor showing in the Euro 2016 finals in France.
Allardyce is the favourite to be offered the post but there are other candidates, notably Eddie Howe of Bournemouth, Steve Bruce at Hull and USA boss Jurgen Klinsman.
The FA has a board meeting on Thursday where a three-man panel is expected to make a recommendation as to who will be the next manager.
