The former Ireland manager, who subsequently endured a miserable stint in the hot seat at Darlington, has been recruited as a match assessor.

His brief will be to scout opposition teams in the build-up to their meetings with the Black Cats and present detailed information to Bruce and his coaches.

"We are looking to Steve to bring a high level of expertise based on his long experience of football at the top level," said Bruce.

"He joins a very experienced backroom team here at Sunderland and I'm sure he will be a great acquisition for us."

Staunton had hinted last month that he was set for a return to the game at Premier League level.
