David Moyes takes charge of the Black Cats for the first time on Monday night as his side face the Swiss lower league outfit, who lost 3-1 to Burnley last week.

Cattermole, Kirchhoff and Jones were left out of Saturday’s friendly against Rotherham United as a precaution, but could feature at the neutral venue of the Stade Camille-Fournier in Evian-les-Bains.

Kirchhoff, who joined Sunderland from Bayern Munich in January and played a key part in the club’s improved results during the run-in, has not yet featured in the Black Cats’ pre-season friendlies.

John O’Shea and Seb Larsson have now joined the squad following their exploits at Euro 216, but are unlikely to feature on Monday with a number of youngsters set to start.
