Dick Advocaat will give Sunderland an answer next Thursday on whether or not he is prepared to stay on as head coach after considering chairman Ellis Short's plans for the club.
The 67-year-old, who was handed just nine games in which to preserve the Black Cats' Premier League status and did so in eight, confirmed on Friday that he has been made an offer, and that he will respond to it next week.
Advocaat said: "They have made me an offer, yes.
"It is in principle not so important in that way, it is also important what the club wants. Can they invest or not? That's also important to know for myself before I take that decision."
