Sam Allardyce interested in bringing Jermain Defoe to Crystal Palace

Sunderland Manager David Moyes has expressed his determination to stay at the Stadium of Light next season, despite the club's relegation to the Championship.

Moyes was also questioned over the Sunderland futures of star pair Jermain Defoe and Jordan Pickford, both of whom have impressed this season despite the club's relegation.

"Right from the start we said it looked like there was a rebuilding job to be done".

"I know what needs to be done to get back in the Premier League and I know what the requirements are to do that". "I came to a part of the country I was led to believe that's how they wanted to be spoken to and I told them exactly".

Sunderland's relegation was confirmed following their 1-0 defeat by Bournemouth last weekend, which left them 13 points adrift of safety with four games remaining, bringing the curtain down on their 10-year stay in the Premier League.

"Until that time, when we are safe, I can't pursue that. I've got a four-year contract so I don't know what you're talking about "a decision".

Three more years of Moyes!

Texans trade up to get QB Watson
Houston's goal here was to find that quarterback of the future while laying the groundwork for contention over the short term. He may not end up starting, but at this point in time he certainly appears to be the best quarterback on the roster.

Chicago officers shot during an "encounter", police say
Johnson, speaking during a news conference about two hours after the shooting, said there was an "extensive manhunt" underway. Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms officials say 70 semi-automatic rifles were recovered in Chicago so far this year.

"When we're secure and safe in the Premier League as hopefully we are, we can talk about all the agents ringing in with their players... and I'll tell you if the agent is telling the truth or not".

"We can only lose the ones who are out of contract".

The midfielder, who worked with Moyes to great effect at Goodison Park during the peak of his career, says players have let the beleaguered boss down but has backed him to come through the current pressure.

Sunderland fans... What do you make of this announcement?

"The law of averages says one of us was going to slip up".

I don't think it has happened very often here at Sunderland, very few have been sold for a profit, I can think of people like Jordan Henderson off the top of my head.
