Sunderland to appoint Derek McInnes after Jordan Pickford sale raises transfer funds for new manager

Derek McInnes has been assured there will be some money to spend at Sunderland

[size=118]Sunderland expect to be able to confirm the appointment of Derek McInnes as manager before the start of next week after managing director Martin Bain flew to America to finalise the deal.
McInnes is due to sign a three-year contract, which will be heavily incentivised, with a large bonus if he can guide the Black Cats back into the Premier League.
Significantly, the 45-year-old has already been assured that there will be some money to spend on new players following the £30m sale of goalkeeper Jordan Pickford to Everton, something he insisted upon in his early conversations with Bain.[/size]

Indeed, it seems Sunderland were keen to get the Pickford deal done before they reached an agreement with Aberdeen over the level of compensation needed to extract McInnes from his contract in Scotland. Sunderland will receive £25m up front for Pickford, with another £5m dependent on a series of performance related clauses.
The 23-year-old’s move to Everton was confirmed on Thursday afternoon and that will allow McInnes to delve into the transfer market as soon as he agrees to leave Aberdeen, with further funds expected to be raised by the £6m sale of forward Fabio Borini to Celtic.

Sunderland also hope to offload centre back Lamine Kone for at least £10m and have also had some interest shown in midfielder Didier Ndong, while Serie A club Atalanta are likely to bid for Vito Mannone.

However, McInnes will need to be reassured by Bain about the direction the club is heading as owner Ellis Short is still engaged in takeover talks.
A source close to the deal has told Telegraph Sport that negotiations are progressing rapidly and there is a chance the club could have a new manager and new owners before the end of the month.

That could unsettle McInnes, who knows that new owners tend to want to appoint their own manager, but Bain will try to reassure him there will be no threat to his job if a takeover happens.
Sunderland have been in this position before and the talks are at a delicate stage with Short, who is desperate to sell up, but wants to recoup as much money as possible given he has invested more than £130m trying to keep the club in the top flight.
The problem is, although a basic price has been agreed in principle, the sticking point seems to be how much more will have to be paid to Short if the club return to the Premier League under their new owners.

            I could have supported Newcastle and be deluded. Instead I chose Sunderland and became depressed.
