Speaking to the club’s website, Moyes said: “I am delighted to have joined Sunderland. I am relishing the challenge and excited by the opportunity.
“I have taken over a big British club, with a great support and I’m looking forward to working in the Premier League again.
“I look forward to continuing the good work done by Sam”.
After securing a £3million compensation deal with the FA for Allardyce’s release to the England job, the club was quick to secure the services of Moyes.
The Scot has been set the task of removing Sunderland from their annual relegation battle and target the top half of the division. Moyes could even be in charge for the friendly at Rotherham on Saturday afternoon.
He is also expected to bring in some stability and offer some of his managerial advice.
