Chris Coleman on brink of accepting Black Cats job — Next Sunderland manager

Former Fulham and Coventry City boss Coleman will team up with Wales internationals Jonny Williams, on loan from Crystal Palace, and right-back Adam Matthews at Sunderland - both of which have played under Coleman at worldwide level.

Coleman led Wales to the semi-finals of UEFA EURO 2016, the nation's greatest achievement in their history in the competition.

Eighteen days after parting company with Simon Grayson, the Black Cats, bottom of the Championship, were poised to announce Coleman as the new man in charge at the Stadium of Light.

"We wish Chris the very best of luck for the future as he returns to club management, a desire for which he has always been honest and open about".

Coleman's future was uncertain after failing to reach next summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

Heckingbottom is understood to be in the running, while former Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka has been linked with the vacancy - although sources close to the Spaniard have distanced him from it - and Ally McCoist, who worked with Bain at Rangers, has also come under consideration.

Coleman will inherit a club in a state if flux on and off the pitch with financial constraints having severely hampered predecessors David Moyes and Grayson and the Black Cats in danger of suffering successive relegations.

There is no doubt that Coleman is an experienced manager and would be a good appointment by Sunderland.

Coleman has held the post of Wales manager since January 2012, taking over following the death of Gary Speed.

Heckingbottom distanced himself from the role when quizzed about being linked to the job before the worldwide break.

He took them to ninth in the Premier League but lost his job in 2007 and moved to Real Sociedad. He also had short spells overseas with Spanish club Real Sociedad and Greek side AEL.

However, he was unable to guide them to next year's World Cup as they missed out on qualification from Europe's Group D last month. But he had considered backtracking on that promise before Sunderland persuaded him to head to the north-east.
