Sunderland officially confirmed the appointment of manager Simon Grayson yesterday evening. After being granted permission to enter talks with the club, Grayson was appointed manager shortly after.

Following the resignation of David Moyes, Sunderland were left searching for a new manager. After suffering relegation to the Championship last season, Grayson shall have a big job on his hands. The former Leeds United manager shall look to restore stability to the club next season.
