Martin O'Neill 'agrees' to become Sunderland boss

Martin O'Neill has agreed to succeed Steve Bruce as Sunderland manager, BBC Sport understands.

However O'Neill, whose last managerial job was with Aston Villa, will not take charge of the team for Sunday's away match against Wolverhampton.

Sunderland have confirmed Bruce's former assistant manager Eric Black will oversee that game.

The Black cats say they will be making a statement in "due course" on their new manager.
