David Moyes has shown interest in the managers vacancy at newly relegated Aston Villa, after being out of work for six months.

Moyes was sacked by Spanish outfit Real Sociedad in November after 12 months in charge, which came after a failed stint at Manchester United.

According to BBC Sport, Moyes is keen on the challenge of reviving Villa following their relegation to the Sky Bet Championship which was confirmed last weekend. Despite his interest, however, reports claim Moyes has reservations about the budget available to the next boss at Villa Park.

Eric Black has been in charge of Villa since Remi Garde was dismissed but the club are keen to bring in a new full-term replacement ready for next season. The Midlands-based club are already preparing for Championship football with four games remaining but there has been no contact with Moyes as of yet.

The Scot has vast experience in management with eleven years at Everton and a year at giants Manchester United. The 52-year-old's only experience in the Championship was at the beginning of his managerial career when he took Preston North End to the play-offs during their first season in the second-tier.

The former-United manager was tipped with taking over at Villa Park earlier on in the season when Tim Sherwood received the boot. However, he chose against the job and it was eventually handed to Garde, who left a few months later.

Among the favourites to take the job at Villa Park are former Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson and Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy.

Elsewhere, Burnley manager Sean Dyche and Hull City boss Steve Bruce are also linked.
