Manchester United boss David Moyes wants to bring Tottenham winger Andros Townsend to Old Trafford, according to The Sun.

The former Everton boss was interested in signing Townsend on loan during his time at Goodison Park and was planning to entice the England international to the Toffees in the summer if he remained in charge of the Merseyside outfit.

And it appears Moyes is still keen on linking up with the 22-year-old winger as he is plotting a move for the Tottenham star.

Townsend has been in fine form for both club and country this season. The attacking midfielder, who graduated through Tottenham's academy, has scored two goals for the north London outfit so far this term.

Townsend also scored on his England debut back in October after being given the chance to impress on the international stage by Roy Hodgson.

Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood has been unable to call on Townsend since taking over the reins at White Hart Lane, as the winger has been sidelined with a hamstring injury.

Manchester United boss Moyes is well stocked in wide areas - but may look to entice Townsend to Old Trafford if he decides to let either Nani, Ashley Young or Antonio Valencia leave the club at the end of the season.
