Sunderland supporters appear to have had a mixed reaction to the news that David Moyes could become their next manager.

The Daily Mirror have suggested that Sunderland could move for Moyes, if Sam Allardyce takes the England job.

The FA are in talks with Allardyce, as they have identified him as their first choice replacement for Roy Hodgson.

Sunderland have urged England to make a swift decision over whether they will appoint Allardyce, as they do not want the speculation to disrupt their preparations for the upcoming campaign.

Allardyce has returned from Sunderland’s pre-season tour of Austria to hold an interview over the Three Lions’ post.

If he does take the England job on, as expected, Sunderland will reportedly move for the out of work Moyes.

Some Sunderland fans feel that Moyes would do a good job at the Stadium of Light, but others are more sceptical.

Moyes had an impressive time at Everton - but his last two jobs, at Manchester United and Real Sociedad, have been disappointing.
