Ellis Short puts Sunderland up for sale

Ellis Short has put Sunderland up for sale.

The Mirror reports Sunderland can be sold for £50million.

Manager Chris Coleman admitted on Monday that owner Short has fallen out of love with football, and appealed for a new tycoon to take charge.

Years of bad decisions and poor form on the pitch has left the Wearsiders facing consecutive relegations.

A source said: “The club has very good infrastructure and nothing hiding under the bonnet now. The club needs a buyer."
