LATEST: ALL CLEAR For Arsenal Hero To Join Premier League Side

Gooners could be set to see one of their stars of time past take the helm at another club in the Premier League, with fresh reports that Sunderland are lining up Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira to replace Dick Advocaat at the Stadium of Light.

According to reports, one of Arsenal’s invincible stars Patrick Vieira is being lined up to take over as manager at Sunderland after Dick Advocaat on Sunday resigned as manager of the club.

Vieira, 39, is a reserve team coach at Manchester City but has been tipped for a managerial position in the Premier League.

Sunderland have started the season in a horrendous fashion, picking up just three points from eight Premier League games under the Dutchman.

And now, reports claim Vieira will be approached by the Black Cats following Advocaat’s exit.
