Sam Allardyce interested in bringing Jermain Defoe to Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace to make move for Sunderland and England ace - once Premier League safety confirmed

David Moyes has revealed Sunderland owner Ellis Short wants him to remain in charge at the Stadium of Light despite his club's relegation from the Premier League.

Sam Allardyce has confirmed his interest in signing Jermain Defoe but insists he is not working on potential transfer targets until Crystal Palace's Premier League status is secure.

His recent return to the England squad and the 2018 World Cup also provide further incentives for the 34-year-old to continue playing regular Premier League football, and Allardyce said: "If we are safe and Jermain Defoe is available, and he wants to come to Crystal Palace, I would be interested".

Sunderland may only have pride to play for now but can still have a big say in the relegation battle with games against fourth-from-bottom Hull City on Saturday night (EST) and Swansea City (currently in the last relegations spot) next week. Hopefully we can get that going.

"Ellis and the board want me to stay", Moyes said when asked if there had been a decision on his future on Friday.

"There was no-one there at the time that we could get in".

Apple working on a credit card to compete with Venmo
The prospect of Apple launching a debit card has irked may banks, since Apple's strong brand could commandeer a user's wallet. Some argue that Apple plans to release an app by the end of the year, while others insist that Apple is nowhere near release.

"I'll tell you if the agent is telling the truth or not".

But speaking to the media ahead of this weekend's clash with Hull, Moyes seemed to suggest that planned meeting with Short and Bain had been successful and that the three are already planning their assault on the Championship together.

"We can only lose the ones who are out of contract".

Sunderland will need to plug the close to £50 million drop in revenue somehow and it is highly likely that the sale of Pickford will be key to that. "Keeper Jordan Pickford is under contract", said Moyes.

David Moyes has confirmed Jermain Defoe has a clause in his contract which could see him leave Sunderland this summer.

Many Sunderland supporters will be dismayed by this morning's headlines however and Moyes has a huge amount to do to convince the fan base he is the right man for the job.
