Sunderland Sam Allardyce To Be Appointed England Manager

London, England – Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce will be confirmed as England manager in the next 24 hours, replacing Roy Hodgson, Sky sources reported.

The FA has since undergone a consultation process involving many leading figures in the game including Harry Redknapp, Rio Ferdinand and Steven Gerrard before meeting with prospective candidates over the last two weeks.

Allardyce was first to be interviewed before Hull City boss Steve Bruce met with the FA’s three-man panel, comprising vice-chairman David Gill, chief executive Martin Glenn and technical director Dan Ashworth.

Sunderland were informed of the news on Wednesday afternoon and that their search for a replacement is already underway.
