Shinnie on the move?
Sunderland have regularly been linked with a move for Aberdeen captain Graeme Shinnie, who is out of contract at the end of the season.
Although the Scottish Premiership outfit wanted to keep the versatile Scottish international, the Daily Record claims Shinnie is eyeing a move to England as a free agent at the end of the season.
As well as Sunderland, Shinnie has been linked with a move to Luton Town - where his brother Andrew currently plays - as well as Derby County and Wigan Athletic.
New role for Edwards
Former Sunderland winger Carlos Edwards is still playing, as the Trinidad & Tobago international has been turning out for ninth tier side Woodbridge Town.
His role at Woodbridge increased this week with the 40-year-old becoming the Eastern Counties League Premier Division club’s joint first team boss where Edwards will work alongside current boss Jamie Scales.
Speaking about the transition, Edwards says the move into management is a great next step for him:
I see it as a natural progression. Coaching and managing is something that has been on my agenda and I want to do more of.
I currently coach youngsters, so to be more involved with senior players at Woodbridge is a great next step.
Everyone at Woodbridge has been so supportive to me and I have a great relationship with Jamie Scales and Glenn Snell. They are both so good at what they do and top guys. I will enjoy working with them more closely.
I like to think the Woodbridge boys respect me too and we can continue the good work going on.
Clark in running for international job
Lee Clark has been out of work since leaving Bury back in 2017 after a run of four consecutive defeats left the Shakers bottom of League One. However, the former Sunderland midfielder may be set for a return to management at international level.
According to the Press Trust of India, Clark is in the running to be the next manager of the Indian national team as they look to replace Stephen Constantine.
Also on the 35-man shortlist is former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson, with the AIFF hoping to call on seven candidates from that shortlist to interview.
