Report: Sunderland to back Moyes for ?long-term project?

David Moyes has the backing of the Sunderland board to oversee a “long-term project”, according to reports.

Sunderland are yet to win in the Premier League and sit bottom of the table after six matches.

Moyes was appointed as Sam Allardyce’s successor in July and immediately warned the Black Cats would face a relegation battle this season.

The former Everton and Manchester United manager has been outspoken in his criticism of his players, while he has also blamed poor recruitment for the club’s struggles over the past five years.

David Moyes “The players did not take responsibility, and we deserve to be bottom.” #SAFC

— Scott Wilson (@Scottwilsonecho) September 24, 2016

However, according to the Daily Telegraph, Sunderland owner Ellis Short and chief executive Martin Bain retain an “unwavering faith” in the Scot.

Moyes made the duo aware of his concerns upon taking the job and he will be backed to bring in players in the January transfer market.

David Moyes: “We have got to get a bit more stability from somewhere.”

— Sunderland AFC (@SunderlandAFC) September 24, 2016

Supporters do not share the same faith and are worried Moyes is too defeatist and has damaged players’ confidence in his public criticism.

Sunderland problems deepen as Januzaj suffers injury blow

Sunderland’s injury problems have worsened with the news Adnan Januzaj has been ruled out for a minimum of six weeks.

The on-loan Manchester United winger injured an ankle in Saturday’s 3-2 Premier League loss to Crystal Palace at the Stadium of Light.

The 21-year-old underwent a scan on Tuesday, with the results confirming he suffered ligament damage and now faces a spell on the sidelines, alongside fellow long-term absentees Vito Mannone, Sebastian Larsson and Fabio Borini.

Goalkeeper Mannone injured an elbow in training and forward Borini damaged a groin taking a free-kick, while knee trouble has sidelined midfielder Larsson.

News of Januzaj’s injury is a further blow to a side struggling to get their season going with the club currently winless at the bottom of the Premier League.

Paper Talk: Pulisic cools Liverpool links; West Ham denials

Christian Pulisic has played down talk of a move to Liverpool, while West Ham have vehemently denied any wrongdoing in the transfer of third-party owned Enner Valencia, according to Wednesday’s newspapers.

 

PULISIC INSISTS HIS FOCUS REMAINS ON DORTMUND

Christian Pulisic says he is completely focused on Borussia Dortmund, despite interest from Liverpool.

The young American was the subject of a failed £11million bid this summer and has since continued to flourish in the Dortmund line-up.

“I’m absolutely focused on the season, performing well and winning games with our team,” Pulisic told The Set Pieces.

Liverpool are reportedly considering returning for a second bid in the January transfer window, with reports suggesting they could raise their offer to £18million for a man already considered to be the most important player in the USA’s footballing history.

Paper Talk: Mata in United talks; Chelsea eye 25m defender

Juan Mata is one of three players in talks over a new deal at Manchester United, while Chelsea have identified the £25m defender they see as John Terry’s long-term replacement, according to Tuesday’s newspapers.

 

NEW DEAL FOR MATA

Juan Mata: Hoping for new United deal

Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata, 28, has held talks with manager Jose Mourinho over a new contract and is “desperate” to stay at the club.

The Spain international has two years left on his current £130,000-a-week deal at Old Trafford, which he signed upon his arrival from Chelsea in January 2014.

The former Valencia ace is believed to be settled in the Manchester area and is happy with life in England.

A United source is reported to have told The Sun: “There have been talks, but Juan is still in the dark over his future at the club.

“He is desperate to stay and likes his life in the Manchester area. It is all down to Jose’s decision now.

“United don’t want to leave this one rumbling though and are keen to sort it before the New Year.”

United’s bid to tie Mata down to a new deal comes despite claims the club are keen to bring Isco to Old Trafford in January.

It’s also been claimed that Mourinho has also held contract talks with Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard, with new deals expected to be announced soon.

 

CHELSEA MAKE KEANE THEIR TOP JANUARY TARGET

Michael Keane: Still wanted by Leicester

Chelsea are set to launch a £25m bid for Michael Keane in a bid to solve their defensive crisis after making the Burnley star one of their top targets.

Stamford Bridge boss Antonio Conte has identified centre-half Keane as the man to address his side’s costly shortcomings at the back, claims the Daily Mirror.

Chelsea are understood to have made a preliminary enquiry about Keane, who was wanted by Premier League champions Leicester in the summer.

Burnley rejected several bids from Leicester, with the Foxes failing with a final offer of £15million for the 23-year-old, who began his career at Manchester United and was allowed to leave last year for £2m.

But Chelsea are confident they can succeed where Leicester failed, with Keane set to be offered an improved contract by Burnley in a bid to keep him at Turf Moor.

The paper claims Chelsea see Keane as the ideal long-term replacement for John Terry, who could retire at the end of the season.

Keane, who has two years left on his current deal, helped Burnley to promotion back to the Premier League at the first attempt last season and has been in demand since.
