David Moyes has been appointed Sunderland manager on a four-year deal.
The former Everton and Manchester United boss, 53, takes charge at the Stadium of Light after Sam Allardyce left to become England manager.
“I have taken over a big British club, with a great support, and I’m looking forward to working in the Premier League again,” said Moyes.
Allardyce was confirmed as Roy Hodgson’s successor with the national team on Friday.

Sunderland chairman Ellis Short said Moyes was “by far and away first choice” to take control of the Black Cats and that he had tried to recruit him several times before.
“He is a man whose football pedigree speaks for itself and is someone I have long admired,” said Short.
“I have spoken with him on many occasions and I have always been hugely impressed.
