David Moyes says he will remain as Sunderland manager next season despite the club’s relegation to the Championship.
The Black Cats have endured a poor season, winning just five times in the top flight, falling into the second tier with four games still remaining.
“I know what needs to be done to get back in the Premier League,” he said.
The Scot also said striker Jermain Defoe, who has scored 14 goals this season, could leave the club.
Moyes, who joined Sunderland on a four-year contract last summer, said: “Jermain has a clause in his contract so it is possible [that he will leave in the summer], but goalkeeper Jordan Pickford is under contract.”
