Premier League - Miliband joins Sunderland board
Former Foreign Secretary David Miliband has been named non-executive vice chairman of Sunderland.
Black Cats chairman Niall Quinn confirmed last month talks had taken place with Miliband, who is MP for South Shields and an Arsenal fan, with reports at the time suggesting the role would carry a £50,000 salary.
Quinn said: "We are delighted and honoured to welcome David to Sunderland and I am certain he can bring an extra dimension to us as a club.
"He is already a great champion of our ethos of community involvement and will be a fabulous asset on this front."
