Former Manchester United boss David Moyes has been offered the chance to return to management by La Liga outfit Real Sociedad, who sacked Jagoba Arrasate on Sunday evening.
This is according to the Daily Mail, who report that Moyes is currently considering the offer. The 51-year-old Scot is in Qatar, where he has been working for BeIN Sports, and is expected to make his decision over the coming days.
Moyes has been out of work since April, when his Manchester United tenure was brought to a premature end following a dreadful debut season in charge at Old Trafford.
Moyes keen to make return
The former Everton manager was dismissed just 10 months into his six-year contract, and has since confirmed that he is looking to make a return. However, he maintains that his next job must be the right one, safe in the knowledge that a disappointing run at another club will further tarnish his reputation.
Moyes, though, would have his work cut out at Anoeta. La Real are currently second-to-bottom in the La Liga table, having picked up one win from their first 10 matches, leaving the club on six points.

Arrasate failed to continue the fine work of French coach Philippe Montanier, who left Real Sociedad for Rennes last summer, despite guiding to the club to a place in the Champions League at the end of the previous season.
And now the Spanish club have turned to Moyes in the belief that his ill-fated spell at Manchester United was nothing more than a bad fit for that particular club.
Moyes out to rebuild reputation
Before agreeing to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson as the Red Devils' manager, Moyes was widely considered one of the Premier League's best managers. But his reputation has taken a hefty blow in recent months and it'll be interesting to see whether he is prepared to change anything about his coaching methods following his Old Trafford ordeal.
Moyes was often accused of using negative tactics during his time with Manchester United, and will be expected to encourage dynamic, attacking football if appointed the new manager of Real Sociedad, who have been one of Spain's most attractive teams to watch over the past two seasons.
