Chris Coleman has resigned as Wales manager and is set to take over at Sunderland.

The 47-year-old is expected to be confirmed as Simon Grayson's successor within the coming hours.

Coleman was in charge for the 49th time as Panama's stoppage-time equaliser denied Wales victory in a 1-1 draw in Cardiff on Tuesday night.

Talks over Coleman's future as Wales manager have been ongoing, with his contract due to finish at the end of the month.
