Allardyce eyes management return with Sunderland as US consortium eye takeover


SAM ALLARDYCE is open to a return to management — and has his sights set on a Sunderland comeback  Big Sam was a hero when he bossed the Black Cats before making an ill-fated move to the England job  And the veteran would be willing to go back if the takeover by an American consortium is completed  Allardyce, 64, thinks he has one more top project in him — and has a backroom staff ready to come along  The imminent takeover — first revealed here three weeks ago — will see MSD Partners pump in cash  Current manager Jack Ross will stay in charge to guide the promotion bid and is guaranteed an extra year if he succeeds  But the ambitious owners- in-waiting want to get back to the Premier League as soon as possible  And that could open the door to former Bolton and West Ham chief Allardyce.  Current owner Stewart Donald will stay in charge at the Stadium of Light after the dream deal  but it is the new money that is the talk of football.  Some big hitters with off-field expertise are keen if the club want a director of football  Sources in the US are convinced the Americans have huge plans.  And there is a push to complete in the next week
