Congerton takes up Sunderland role
Sunderland have confirmed the appointment of Lee Congerton as the club's sporting director.
Congerton joins the club from German outfit Hamburg, where he was working as technical director, and effectively replaces former director of football Roberto De Fanti, who left the Stadium of Light in January.
He will work alongside head coach Gus Poyet, overseeing player recruitment and the club's domestic and international scouting operation.
