Blackpool boss McDonald wanted at Sunderland

Blackpool boss Neil McDonald is being linked with Sunderland.

The Sunday Express says new manager Sam Allardyce is hoping to persuade his trusty number two McDonald to quit his job as boss of struggling League One club Blackpool and move to the Stadium of Light.

He also has been assured he is in charge of recruitment with Short giving the former West Ham boss the title of manager as opposed to head coach.

Current sporting director Lee Congerton is working his notice and Big Sam wants to bring in his own recruitment people led by Martyn Glover who was with Allardyce at West Ham but who has since moved onto Championship side Leeds United.
