Black Cats search goes on

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - SPORTS -

SUN­DER­LAND are still to iden­tify the man they want to take the club for­ward as they con­tinue their search for a new man­ager.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive Martin Bain has held talks with po­ten­tial can­di­dates in re­cent days and the odds o n B a r n s l ey ’s Pa u l Heck­ing­bot­tom re­turn­ing to the club where he was a trainee have tum­bled to evens with some book­mak­ers.

How­ever, it is un­der­stood Bain is still pon­der­ing a range of op­tions for an ap­point­ment he sim­ply can­not af­ford to get wrong af­ter David Moyes and Si­mon Grayson both presided over dis­as­trous spells at the Sta­dium of Light.

Heck­ing­bot­tom is un­der­stood to be in the run­ning, while for­mer Mid­dles­brough boss Ai­tor Karanka has been linked with the va­cancy and Ally Mc­Coist, who worked with Bain at Rangers, has also come un­der con­sid­er­a­tion.

But sources onWear­side have in­di­cated that no ap­point­ment is im­mi­nent with the search hav­ing en­tered its third week.
