Sunderland considering promotion winning manager to replace David Moyes

Sunderland are considering Paul Lambert for the vacant managerial role at the Stadium of Light this summer, as their search for David Moyes’ successor continues, reports the Mirror.

Moyes left the Stadium of Light last month following Sunderland’s relegation from the Premier League, and the Black Cats are yet to announce a permanent successor, despite the Sky Bet Championship season being under two months away.

Lambert is reportedly one of a number of candidates under consideration, just weeks after he left his role at Molineux as Wolverhampton Wanderers’ manager.

The Scot left Molineux after clashing with Jorge Mendes, the high-profile football agent, and was replaced by Nuno Espirito Santo, after just seven months with Wolves.

Having taken over at Molineux in late 2016, Lambert led Wolves to a 15th placed finish in the Championship last season.

Lambert has masses of experience in the Championship, and has achieved promotion to the top-flight on one occasion, with Norwich City during the 2010/11 campaign.

The 47-year old is not the only name under consideration by Sunderland, with Derek McInnes, Nigel Clough and Simon Grayson also in the frame to replace Moyes.

Another manager Sunderland had considered was Garry Monk, who has since been appointed as Middlesbrough’s manager, ahead of their return to the second-tier.
