Black Cats talking to Advocaat.
Byline: JOHN CROSS & DARREN LEWIS
DICK ADVOCAAT was last night in talks to become Sunderland's "fire-fighter" - but Sam Allardyce is their No.1 long-term choice as boss.
Sunderland owner Ellis Short sacked Gus Poyet yesterday. He wants an interim appointment until the summer and director of football Lee Congerton is now in negotiations with former Ibrox boss Advocaat.
Sunderland are looking for a quick fix having been plunged deeper into relegation danger after the 4-0 home defeat by Aston Villa on Saturday.
But West Ham's Allardyce is in the frame to become their permanent boss with his chances of a new deal at Upton Park looking unlikely.
And the resulting managerial merry-go-round would open the way for Real Sociedad boss David Moyes to return to the Premier League with the Hammers.
