Sunderland head coach Dick Advocaat has revealed he has made a decision over his future - but refused to say what it is.

The 68-year-old attended his pre-match press conference after Saturday's 2-2 Barclays Premier League draw with West Ham at the Stadium of Light, which was played out amid speculation that it was his final game in charge.

However, asked if he could confirm he would still be in post beyond this weekend, he replied: "No, I can't say that."

Asked further if he had made a decision over his future, he said: "Yes, I have made a decision.

"I don't like that I don't want to discuss my own future, you will hear it this way or the other way. Let's wait and see."

Sergio Aguero became the fifth Premier League player to score five goals in a game as he helped City come from behind to thrash Newcastle 6-1 at the Etihad Stadium.

All of the Argentinian's goals came in a 20-minute spell - making it the fastest five-goal haul in the league's history.

After Aleksandr Mitrovic put the visitors ahead, Aguero equalised with a header in the 42nd minute. He had already completed his hat-trick eight minutes later.

Only four other players to have managed the feat since the Premier League began in 1992 - Jermain Defoe for Tottenham, Alan Shearer for Newcastle and Andy Cole and Dimitar Berbatov for Manchester United.
