Sunderland are planning to interview Roy Keane over their vacant managerial position, according to stunning reports.
Keane, 50, is being lined up for sensational talks with the club's board following the sacking of Lee Johnson.
The League One outfit parted ways with Johnson after they were hammered 6-0 at Bolton last weekend.
The Black Cats want to speak to Keane, who, of course, led the club to the Premier League after winning the Championship title in the 2006/07 season.
Owner Kyril Louis-Dreyfus and sporting director Kristjaan Speakman will lead the interview process, with the report claiming they expect to have a conversation with Keane.
He's evens to land the role, according to bookies - with Micah Richards taking to social media to react.
The Irishman's first managerial gig was taking charge of the Stadium of Light side.
But his time at the club came to an end after a falling out with former owner Ellis Short.
Keane last managed at Ipswich in 2011.
He's kept himself busy with punditry roles at ITV and Sky Sports.
