Scottish starlet linked

Sunderland have been linked with a move for in-demand Scottish youngster Bruno Davidson.

The 15-year-old is on the books of Edinburgh side Hutchison Vale and has been linked with a number of clubs this season.

According to the Scottish Sun, Sunderland and Celtic have made offers for Davidson, who has already visited Southampton and Liverpool this season.

Wolverhampton Wanderers and Leicester City are also interested in the talented teenager.

New role for Advocaat

One former Sunderland manager found a new job this week, while another has been linked with a return to the Premier League.

Dick Advocaat was named Feyenoord manager yesterday, replacing Jaap Stam as the Eredivisie club’s boss.

The appointment is his 24th in management and comes on the back of the 72-year-old steering FC Utrecht into the Europa League last season.

Meanwhile, Chris Coleman has been linked with the manager’s role at Southampton.

The Premier League side are struggling this season and, coming off the back of their record-breaking 9-0 home defeat to Leicester City, Ralph Hassenhuttl has found himself under increasing pressure.

That has led the Daily Mirror to suggest that Coleman is on a list of possible replacements, should Southampton seek to make a change.
