Championship-bound Sunderland are looking at Wolves boss Paul Lambert as a potential successor to David Moyes at the Stadium of Light, according to The Chronicle.
Former Manchester United and Everton manager Moyes resigned from his post earlier this week after failing to keep the Black Cats in the Premier League, finishing the campaign with a mere 24 points from their 38 matches, and 16 points adrift of safety.
And the 54-year-old decided against leading the North East giants in the Championship, yet the Sunderland hierarchy are already moving to appoint his successor, with Wolves manager Lambert a reported target for the Black Cats.
The 47-year-old’s future at Molineux remains unclear heading into the summer amid frustrations with the board, and he may well be offered a route out of the club should Sunderland come knocking.
And with vast amounts of experience in the Championship, be it near the top with Norwich City or nearer the bottom with Blackburn Rovers and Wolves, he could be exactly the man the Black Cats need to rebuild the club and get them back into the top-flight.
However, it remains to be seen whether Lambert does indeed leave his job at Wolves, yet if he does, you’d expect Sunderland to call the 47-year-old for interview, which are reportedly due to take place next week.
