DWIGHT YORKE has revealed his interest in becoming Sunderland manager one day.

The 43-year-old, who played for the Black Cats from 2006 to 2009, says he has 'unfinished business' with the club.

And has admitted that it's a role he would seriously consider should Dick Advocaat depart at the end of the season.

He told Kicca: "I feel that I'm in a good place now that it is something that would be very appealing to me if and when that job does come about maybe it is something that I would really consider looking into.

"Certainly I've made no secret that I'm doing my coaching badges at this point in time

"I take football very seriously and I've learnt a lot over the years being a professional player for a number of years, been part of a backroom staff, learning my coaching badges.

"And I feel that one day given the chance the opportunity may come along at Sunderland it would be a team of great interest to me because I feel I've got unfinished business there.

"I see myself as an aspiring, new, young manager coming through the ranks once I've finished my qualifications this year I will certainly be looking at it with one eye.

"At the moment we know Dick Advocaat is the manager there and we wish him well. Again they are a club that I have a great deal of admiration for."

Yorke made made 59 league appearances for Sunderland scoring six times.
