Allardyce was confirmed as Roy Hodgson's successor with the national team on Friday, leaving a Premier League vacancy at the Stadium of Light.

A statement published on Sunderland's official website on Saturday morning revealed former Manchester United manager Moyes, 53, has arrived on Wearside on a four-year contract.

Moyes said on www.safc.com:

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.
