Sunderland confirm that Gus Poyet has been appointed as their new head coach.

Sunderland have confirmed that Gus Poyet has been appointed as their new head coach.

Poyet, who has signed a two-year deal at the Stadium of Light, will replace Paolo Di Canio after the Italian was sacked last month.

Kevin Ball had been placed in temporary charge of the North-East outfit, but the club have opted to move for the former Brighton & Hove Albion manager.

Poyet will be assisted by Mauricio Taricco and Charlie Oatway, who were part of the 45-year-old's backroom staff at the Championship club.

The former Chelsea midfielder's first match in charge of Sunderland will be away to Swansea City on October 19.
