Stoke have confirmed the arrival of Alex Neil as their new manager on a three-year contract.

Neil has left Sunderland to take the job after the Black Cats gave the Potters permission to speak to the 41-year-old about the vacancy.

The Scotsman was in attendance to watch Stoke’s 1-0 win over Blackburn on Saturday before the switch was officially confirmed.

Sunderland, meanwhile, lost 1-0 to Norwich on the same day with assistant head coach Martin Canning, first-team coaches Mike Dodds and Michael Proctor plus head of goalkeeping Alessandro Barcherini taking charge of the team.

Neil had a terrific six months at Sunderland where he won promotion to the Championship with the Black Cats via the League One play-offs.

He replaces Michael O’Neill in the Stoke dugout after he was sacked with the club 21st in the table, with just one win from their opening five games.
