Paul Heckingbottom could join Black Cats from Barnsley — New Sunderland boss

Paul Heckingbottom could join Black Cats from Barnsley — New Sunderland boss”

Barnsley head coach Paul Heckingbottom remains high in the thoughts of the Sunderland hierarchy as they intensify their search to find a successor to Simon Grayson in the coming days.

Heckingbottom distanced himself from the role when quizzed about being linked to the job before the global break.

Grayson was sacked minutes after a 3-3 home draw with Bolton on October 31, and the managerless club now sits at the foot of the table with just 10 points from its first 16 games.

The Black Cats are willing to pay Heckingbottom around £750,000-a-year plus bonuses to tempt him to drop down the Championship to join them.

Sunderland fixed their sights on Heckingbottom after running into snags appointing Ally McCoist and Walter Smith as a managerial duo.

But, no approach has been made between the club and Heckingbottom as things stand.

Heckingbottom, 40, is now on a 12-month rolling contract. But I've always chosen to stay here, and that's been down to me at the time.

However, Barnsley could become a victim of their own success.

Insiders revealed Heckingbottom is barely on a six figure salary at Barnsley and the Sunderland money will be impossible to refuse despite their problems.

And he has the chance to do that now, having bought in a number of young, talented players in the summer.
