AEK Athens hire former Sunderland manager Gus Poyet
Former Sunderland boss Gus Poyet has agreed to become the new manager of Greek side AEK Athens.
Poyet was sacked by the Black Cats in March and was linked with the vacant post at Aston Villa.
But AEK, who sit third in the Super League under interim head coach Stelios Manolas, have agreed terms with the 47-year-old.
A statement on their website, under the banner "The Gus Poyet era at AEK FC begins," read: "AEK FC announces the agreement with the Uruguayan manager Gustavo Poyet until the summer 2016. The new manager will sign his contract tomorrow."
