McInnes has just returned from a three-week holiday in America following an impressive season which saw Aberdeen finish runners-up to Celtic in the league and both domestic cups.

Sunderland reportedly maintain an interest in Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes and plan to make a concrete approach for the Dons boss this week.

Talks are continuing between the two clubs, with McInnes due back in the country early next week, by which point Sunderland want to be in a position to confirm him as the successor to Moyes.

Relegated Sunderland hope to pay less but an agreement should be reached later today, with Aberdeen holding a board meeting this afternoon.

The Pittodrie club acknowledged McInnes' desire to leave by yesterday entering into negotiations with Sunderland about a near-£1 million compensation package.

The 45-year-old is now in charge of Aberdeen, who are seeking £1million of compensation from the Black Cats.

McInnes, 45, who had spells with Rangers and West Brom as a player, has had an impressive season at Pittodrie and previously managed in England with Bristol City between October 2011 and January 2013.

The Aberdeen manager is the bookies favourite to take up the Stadium of Light post for the up-coming Championship campaign.

McInnes began his managerial career at St Johnstone in November 2007, leading the Perth side to promotion to the Scottish Premiership in the 2008-09 season.
