    • Coleman confirmed in post on Sunday
    • Sunderland are bottom of the Championship

    Chris Coleman has been confirmed as the new Sunderland manager. The 47-year-old has signed a two-and-a-half year deal to become Simon Grayson’s successor in what is a major boost for Sunderland and a huge blow for the Football Association of Wales, which had hoped to persuade Coleman to sign a new contract.

    The FAW held a board meeting on Friday to discuss his position, with both parties previously involved in lengthy talks about extending the deal that was due to expire at the end of this month, but Coleman has decided the time is right to return to club management and has agreed to take the plunge with Sunderland.

    Club’s ninth manager in six years has an in-tray stacked with woe after a record failure to win at home underlines his task

    As Chris Coleman packed a suitcase and prepared to become Sunderland’s ninth manager in six years, his new players issued a reminder of the grisly challenge facing the former Wales coach.

    • Odds on Wales manager switching to Sunderland slashed
    • Coleman could use situation to strengthen position with Wales

    Chris Coleman is the latest international manager interesting Sunderland after Michael O’Neill rejected their advances. As Coleman’s time with Wales approaches a critical juncture, the odds on him taking over the Championship’s bottom club were slashed on Thursday.

    Yet although Sunderland would be delighted to welcome him as Simon Grayson’s successor, and some substantial bets have been placed on the former Fulham manager relocating to Wearside, there is the possibility Coleman could use the situation to strengthen his position with Wales.

    • USA also understood to have interest in 48-year-old manager

    The Scottish Football Association has requested talks with Michael O’Neill and Sunderland are also interested. It remains a long shot for now that the man who oversaw Northern Ireland’s run to Euro 2016 and a World Cup play-off would take the job at the Stadium of Light.

    The USA are also understood to want to speak to O’Neill about taking charge of their international side – a highly lucrative post. O’Neill’s brother is based in Chicago.
