David Moyes has expressed an interest in returning to Everton as manager.
The Toffees are on the hunt for a new boss after Roberto Martinez was sacked this week.
Martinez was relieved of his duties after the 3-0 defeat to Sunderland, marking the end of a reign that never lived up to the standards set by his predecessor.

Moyes left the club in 2013 to replace Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United but has not had a job in the Premier League since being sacked near the end of his first season in charge.
He told The Times: “Would I consider going back? I’ve said if I get an exciting challenge and something that makes me feel I could get my teeth into it then I would be really interested.”
However, as speculation mounts surrounding who will be in the Everton hot seat next season, it may be difficult for Moyes to find a way back.
He faces stiff competition from Ronald Koeman and Frank de Boer, though the latter seems the more likely candidate as he is now available after leaving Ajax. His agent has also confirmed his interest in the role, while Koeman has insisted he is happy at Southampton.
As for the "challenge" Moyes is looking for, he would certainly face a tough test at Goodison Park. In his first reign, he established the Blues as European regulars, even guiding them to the Champions League on one occasion.
Everton could finish as low as sixteenth if results go against them on the final day, and Moyes will have some significant work to do if he does undertake a second spell in charge.
Yet, whoever does take the job will have an impressive squad at their disposal, boasting the likes of Ross Barkley, Gerard Deolofeu and Romelu Lukaku, though the latter would take some persuading to stay by all accounts.
On the bright side, Everton's fortunes can hardly get any worse.
