The club has confirmed the 41-year-old former Darlington manager, who joined the Black Cats a year ago, has left.

However, insiders insist his departure was an Academy decision and not part of new manager Paolo Di Canio's plans for an overhaul of the senior set-up.

Sunderland recently dispensed with the services of chief scout Bryan "Pop" Robson, while Italian Roberto Di Fanti is expected to be appointed director of football in due course.
