Sunderland and Scotland move for Michael O’Neill

Scotland and Sunderland have made a moves to land Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill.

The Black Cats have been looking at a number of options following their sacking of Simon Grayson, whilst the Scottish Football Association are looking for Gordon Strachan’s replacement.

The SFA currently have their performance director Malky Mackay in interim charge, but the chance of landing O’Neill clearly is an avenue they want to go down.

Likewise Sunderland are pursuing O’Neill as their top target.

Barnsley’s Paul Heckingbottom is another man who they like a lot, but they have made a move to try and lure O’Neill.

Interest in former Rangers boss Ally McCoist and ex-Middlesbrough chief Aitor Karanka have failed to materialise.

O’Neill has performed wonders with Northern Ireland, and they only just missed out to Switzerland for a place in the World Cup finals.

Now both Scotland and Sunderland are hoping to land O’Neill – who has also attracted interest from USA, who are in need of a new head coach after they axed Bruce Arena following their failure to qualify for the World Cup finals.
