Sunderland have held talks with Niall Quinn and his consortium in Dublin as moves to sell the club gather pace.

Chairman Bob Murray, vice chairman John Fickling, chief executive Peter Walker and director of marketing and communications Lesley Callaghan flew to the Republic of Ireland on Tuesday for further discussions with Quinn and his partners. Stock Exchange rules mean the club cannot comment on the progress or otherwise of the consortium´s bid to buy out majority shareholder Murray, although it is understood the tone of latest meeting was positive.

A spokesman told PA Sport: "I can confirm discussions between the board and Niall Quinn are ongoing, but because of the take-over code we are unable to comment further."
