Former Manchester United defender Henning Berg expects David Moyes to target some of his current Everton crop when the Scot is announced as Sir Alex Ferguson's successor at Old Trafford.

Moyes is set to be revealed as Ferguson's replacement following the announcement on Wednesday that the 71-year-old would finish his illustrious tenure with the club at the end of the season.

The expectation that Moyes will leave Everton for Manchester United has led to speculation that the 50-year-old may attempt to bring some Toffees stars with him when he officially takes charge on July 1.

Berg, a two-time Premier League title winner with Manchester United, believes the appointment of Moyes is a sensible one by the Red Devils, and can envisage the new boss utilising his Everton relationships to reinforce his new squad.

The ex-Blackburn boss expects Moyes to try to sign a couple of players from the Toffees and, according to talkSPORT, Berg believes those Goodison Park stars are Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines.

"David Moyes is a very good choice," he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show. "He’s very similar to Ferguson as a manger.

"He’s shown at Everton what he can do with limited resources and he will look to lead the club in the same way.

"Of course he might want to bring one or two players with him [from Everton] but I don’t think there will be too many changes.

"Most things are working at United at the moment so it’s a smooth transition. He will look to keep most of the staff there as well. Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes will stay and keep that tradition of the club going."
