Chris Coleman has been "released from his contract" as Sunderland manager, while owner Ellis Short has confirmed he has agreed a deal to sell the club.

An "international consortium of football investors", led by Eastleigh chairman Stewart Donald, will take over Sunderland subject to EFL approval.

The Black Cats were relegated to League One after losing to Burton on 21 April, their second successive relegation.

Coleman left his job as Wales manager to replace Simon Grayson in November.

The 47-year-old guided his country to the semi-finals at Euro 2016, but is now out of work having won just five of his 29 games in charge at the Stadium of Light.
Not surprising, they have been woeful all season.

Sunderland was facing problems on and off the pitch and many knew Coleman taking this on was a huge gamble; the outcome has resulted in Coleman's stock in the game plummeting. He won't get a job in the Premier League any time soon whereas he might have got one had he avoided Sunderland and held out.

Must be related to a takeover. He had all but said he would be here next season.

He did well with Wales but hasn't achieved anything at club level. Been failure after failure.

I suppose the new owners have someone else in mind to manage the club.

Short gone. Coleman gone. New owner.

What does the future hold for the black cats?

Coleman deserved a shot next season to see what he could have done. He looked to have learned about what he had in his squad (all be it too late) and what he'd have needed to have added. I'm disappointed for him, he was up for the challenge and wanted to be here.

Chris Coleman has been named as the new manager of Chinese club Hebei China Fortune.

The 48-year-old Welshman has been out of work since leaving Sunderland in April having failed to prevent the club's relegation to League One.

He won only five of his 29 games in charge at the Stadium of Light.

The former Coventry, Fulham and Real Sociedad manager succeeds Manuel Pellegrini, who left the club last month to take the West Ham job.

Hebei China Fortune, whose players include former Barcelona defender Javier Mascherano, are 10th in the Chinese Super League after 11 games.

The league's mid-season break ends on 17 July.
Can't see him doing much there either.

I wonder will he be unlucky there like he was at Fulham, Coventry, Real Socidead, AEL and Sunderland, or will his real greatness be evident as it was with Wales?
