Sunderland have confirmed American tycoon Ellis Short is to assume 100% control of the club.

The club's majority shareholder, who bankrolled their summer spending spree last year, will complete his buy-out of the Drumaville consortium put together by chairman Niall Quinn three years ago.

Quinn told the club's official website, "This is fantastic news for the club. Ellis has already shown tremendous commitment to date, but today's announcement opens the door for a new era at the Stadium of Light."
