Former Manchester United midfielder star Roy Keane has agreed terms with Sunderland with regards to taking over as 1st Team manager.

With the Mackems seeing fit to continue as they left off (currently bottom of the Championship), Roy’s lack of experience will certainly make interesting watching for the neutrals.

The official Sunderland site said: ‘Keane and the club have agreed terms for him to be appointed as manager, and it is envisaged that he will sign a formal contract immediately after Sunderland’s game against West Brom tomorrow.’

It is believed that former United Assistant Manager Brian Kidd will join Keane, who replaces Niall Quinn as manager. Quinn, who recently led a consortium that bought the club, sacked himself…that must have been a fun meeting!
