Gus Poyet appointed as Sunderland's new manager on two-year deal
Sunderland have confirmed the appointment of Gus Poyet as their new head coach.
The 45-year-old has agreed a two year contract and will take charge with immediate effect.
Poyet, who left Brighton in the summer, will be joined at the Stadium of Light by his backroom staff Mauricio Taricco and Charlie Oatway.
Sunderland chairman Ellis Short said: "We analysed a wide range of candidates and believe that Gus's track record, experience, commitment and passion make him the right man to take us forward.
"We welcome him to Sunderland."
The Uruguayan began his coaching career in England in 2006 at Swindon Town, before joining Leeds United as assistant manager.
After a year at Elland Road, Poyet returned to his former club Tottenham Hotspur as first team coach, before becoming assistant manager to Juande Ramos.
