Report: Dick Advocaat agrees Sunderland contract

Dick Advocaat

Former Rangers boss Dick Advocaat has reportedly agreed to take charge of Sunderland for the 2015-16 season.

Dick Advocaat has decided to agree on a one-year contract with Premier League club Sunderland, according to The Sun.

It has been reported by the British tabloid that the Dutchman has made a U-turn on his initial decision not to carry on at the Stadium of Light.

Advocaat was appointed the Sunderland boss in mid-March following the dismissal of Gus Poyet.

The task of the former Rangers boss was to keep the Black Cats in the Premier League, and he did just that.

Although Sunderland offered him the chance to remain their head coach, Advocaat declined due to family reasons.

However, The Sun now claim that the 67-year-old has decided to remain in charge of the English team and has agreed a one-year contract.

This will come as good news to the Sunderland fans, as the club are still searching for a new manager.

Advocaat was quite emotional after securing survival for the Black Cats, and it showed just how much he cares about the club.
