David Moyes has confirmed he will remain as Sunderland manager next season despite relegation to the Championship.

"If we are safe and Jermain Defoe is available, and he wants to come to Crystal Palace, I would be interested", he told reporters.

It was just last Friday that the Sunderland boss indicated he would consider his future at the end of the season and following the confirmation of relegation with defeat against Bournemouth, Moyes reiterated that intent.

Yes. We have to find a way to get things correct and we'll see what we can do.

"If we were to do it I'd be able to say we'd got an understanding of what it would need to bring him to the club but we've not done that yet with him". "You want managers to tell the truth and I do".

"But until that time when we are safe, I can't pursue that".

They have remained close for the sake of their sons Mason , seven, and Reign , two, and four-year-old daughter Penelope . Both Younes and his girl wore matching outfits, casual white t-shirts and blue jeans.

Moyes, who joined Sunderland on a four-year contract last summer, said: "Jermain has a clause in his contract so it is possible [that he will leave in the summer], but goalkeeper Jordan Pickford is under contract".

While clear that he retained a base of support in the boardroom, Moyes hinted he wanted to hear more about the club's ambitions for next season when the men reconvene at the end of the campaign.

"We can only lose the ones who are out of contract". I told them exactly.

Sunderland have been actively looking for new investment and the club's latest accounts revealed they have debts of more than £110m.

The midfielder, who worked with Moyes to great effect at Goodison Park during the peak of his career, says players have let the beleaguered boss down but has backed him to come through the current pressure.

THE LIKES OF Manchester United and Arsenal have been warned that Sunderland will be "expensive sellers" this summer as interest mounts in key players such as Jordan Pickford.
