Sunderland are looking to approach Harry Redknapp to take over the vacant managerial position at the Stadium of Light, according to reports.
Sunderland are clearly struggling in the Championship and the Black Cats currently find themselves in the relegation zone.
Due to such poor results on the pitch, Sunderland got rid of their manager Simon Grayson last month and are currently without a permanent man in charge of the club.
Since the departure of Grayson, many names have been mentioned to take over the reins at Sunderland with the likes of Kevin Philips, John O’Shea and Nathan Jones believed to be among the front runners.
However, recent reports emerging out of England have tipped former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp to become the next Black Cats manager.
Redknapp was only relieved of his duties at Birmingham City earlier this season and might be a risky option.
Nevertheless, Redknapp is a veteran who has been involved in English football for numerous decades and the risks associated with the 70-year-old might be worth it for Sunderland, as the ex-Spurs man has a very good record in repairing struggling teams.
