Ellis Short willing to accept offer of £85m to sell Sunderland 

According to The Sun, Ellis Short held a meeting with German bidders in London earlier this week, but they are only prepared to offer £50m.

An American consortium is also said to be weighing up an offer, meanwhile, with Short giving both potential buyers until the end of the month to agree a deal.

The Black Cats have put their search for a new manager on hold until the club is sold, having recently missed out on top target Derek McInnes .
