Sunderland chairman Niall Quinn has confirmed the club have held talks with former Foreign Secretary David Miliband over a role at the Stadium of Light. Reports on Tuesday evening suggested the 45-year-old South Shields MP, who was beaten in the Labour leadership election by brother Ed, is to become the Black Cats' vice-chairman on a salary of £50,000. Quinn said: "We are always challenging ourselves to find new ways to grow and develop the club and to make it stronger. "We have had talks with David Miliband about a non-executive role at the club, but have nothing further to report at the moment."
