Keane agrees Black Cats terms

27 Aug 2006 - 19:31:11

Former Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane has agreed terms to become Sunderland's new manager.

The 35-year-old visited the club on Sunday and met with players and officials.

He is expected to sign a formal contract immediately after the Black Cats' Championship game against West Brom on Monday.

Keane will team up with former Republic of Ireland team-mate Niall Quinn at the Stadium of Light.

Quinn is the club's chairman and had been manager for the first five games of the season - all of which have been lost.
