According to various sources Steve Bruce’s job is under even greater threat this morning with Martin O’Neill believed to be the ideal replacement.
Bruce’s position has been weakened by Niall Quinn’s sudden departure as chairman, leaving Ellis Short to take up the reigns.
Short’s arrival at the Stadium of Light paved the way for Roy Keane’s departure in 2009 shortly after his arrival at the club.
According to the Sunday Express Bruce’s time at SOL is running out and Short has lined up former Leicester, Celtic and Aston Villa supremo O’Neill as his replacement.
O’Neill has been out of the game since leaving Villa on the eve of last season and was reportedly set to take the West Ham job from Avram Grant but changed his mind after the news was leaked.
Indeed, Ladbrokes have Bruce as short as 2/1 to be the first Premier League manager of the season to lose his job.
