David Moyes has been approached by Real Sociedad president Jokin Aperribay for a return to management, according to ESPN.

Citing reports in Spain, ESPN says Aperribay met Moyes in London in an attempt to convince him to take over Jagoba Arrasate's post at the La Liga club. The current Sociedad coach is on the brink of losing his job after a poor record so far this season.

Sociedad are precariously hovering a point above the relegation zone and have only won once of their first nine league games. They have also been knocked out of the Europa League at the hands of Russian side FC Krasnodar.

Spanish sports newspaper Diario AS said Aperribay flew to the UK on Thursday after Moyes was supposedly named the favoured candidate for the position.

According to that report, the ex-Everton boss turned down an initial offer from the club and was also linked with the Inter Milan job following Walter Mazzari's stuttering start to the campaign.

But the Scot did express his interest in working outside of the UK should the right offer come along.


A change in the dugout is considered likely should Arraste's men fail to pick up three points at home against Malaga on Saturday.

Moyes' last game in charge of a team involved both of his former clubs, the 51-year-old saw his 10-month Manchester United reign end after a 2-0 defeat to Everton, where he had managed for 11 years prior.

Alternatively Sociedad have been looking at other options. Ex-Real Betis and West Bromwich Albion boss Pepe Mel is a possible candidate whilst Ex-Real Madrid, Sevilla and Tottenham Hotspur coach Juande Ramos has also been thrown into the mix.
