Phil Neville is set to return to Manchester United, becoming Manchester United's new first-team coach under David Moyes.

Neville, who made 263 league appearances for Manchester United, ended his 18-year playing career last month.

Popular for his versatility in the defence and midfield, Neville was spotted at Manchester United's training ground Carrington earlier this morning.

According to the Daily Mail, the Premier League champions will name the 36-year-old as the new first-team coach of the club.

Neville will become the latest backroom appointment alongside former Everton staff members Chris Woods, Steve Round, Robbie Cooke and Jimmy Lumsden.

Neville played under Moyes for eight years after he arrived at Goodison Park in 2005 for a reported fee of £3.5million.

Neville is also the younger brother of former Manchester United captain and current Sky Sports pundit Gary.

The Neville brothers came through Manchester United's youth academy in the 90s and were part of the famous 'Class of '92'.

Neville also holds the UEFA B Licence award for coaching and has worked on the coaching staff for the England Under-21s in this summer's Euros.

Neville is expected to be involved in Moyes' first training session - which takes place later on today.
