Sunderland have been tipped to reignite their interest in a previous managerial target in the summer.

Sunderland spent over two weeks searching for the perfect replacement for Tony Mowbray last month and were heavily linked with a number of exciting, young managers from abroad.

The announcement that the Black Cats were expected to sign former QPR and Rangers coach Michael Beale angered supporters and drew harsh criticism for the board.

Having lost four of his first seven games in charge, Michael Beale has also failed to dispel the naysayers, and Sunderland is currently ranked tenth in the Championship.

Many people have urged Kyril Louis-Dreyfus to fire Beale right now and reinstate Mike Dodds through the conclusion of the season, although it’s not apparent who they could name as a long-term replacement.

One name who appeared to be Sunderland’s main target in December was Will Still, who currently manages sixth-place Reims in Ligue 1 and has a 46% win rate with the French outfit.

The ‘incredible’ 31-year-old blew up across Europe when he joined Reims and went on a 14-game unbeaten streak in all competitions, despite not even holding a UEFA Pro Licence at the time.

It was reported last week that Sunderland really wanted Will Still, but couldn’t afford his compensation.
