It’s been all change at Sunderland of late with new owners set to be on the way in and a new manager definitely coming in after Phil Parkinson was shown the door at the weekend.
The Black Cats’ support has seen large sections call for both changes in the ownership and managerial roles and they appear to be getting both, with Stewart Donald’s reign as majority shareholder looking close to an end.
However, Alan Nixon has revealed there may well be a couple of sticking points just holding things up slightly – though they’ll be hoping that they are nothing major:
They’re on with it. But there are issues to resolve. For me … the money owed to the Americans has to be one problem to settle. https://t.co/GOCoM40EKJ

Kyril Louis-Dreyfus and Juan Sartori are the pair hoping to get things over the line soon and Black Cats fans will hope they are the duo to really help get Sunderland up the league table and up the football pyramid thereafter.
A lot of roles need appointments at Sunderland at the moment across the club and that will be their task once they have rubber-stamped their takeover.
It would appear, though, there are a couple of things to still iron out between now and then but it does not sound as though there is anything too major getting in their way at the moment.
