Sunderland set for another takeover as American investor Mark Campbell looks to take over from Stewart Donald


SUNDERLAND are set for another change of hands after owner Stewart Donald agreed to sell his stake in the club.

According to the Mail, the North East club are gearing up for a takeover just over a year after Donald bought 64 per cent of the club.

Now American businessman Mark Campbell is in line to become the new majority shareholder with a 74 per cent stake.

He would also take a 10 per cent share from Juan Sartori just weeks after the Black Cats failed to return to the Championship following defeat to Charlton in the playoff final.

It is only 13 months since Ellis Short flogged the club to Donald and the club have been languishing in League One.

Jack Ross’ position as manager has reportedly been assured as he gears up for another season in the third tier of English football.

The Mackems have had a harsh reality check since their hapless relegation from the Premier League in 2016-17.

They finished rock bottom but already faced financial uncertainty at that point.
